Penny for the Guy


Oil on board 16x12 inch. Penny for the Guy is set in the 1950's uk. Kids would build a "Guy" out of old clothes stuffed with anything to hand and make a mask for the face, they would then stand in the street and beg "penny for the Guy mister" to get money for fireworks on bonfire night when the Guy would be burnt on a roaring fire, poor old Guy Fawkes.
