    There are currently some significant errors with the description of this clip.....

    Firstly, "Lennie Mason" in title, text and tags should read Lenny Mason.

    The text also describes the subject here as being a "Miss". However this is in fact a teenage boy, who appeared on several postcards in the early 20th century. The attachment shows him on one of these postcards, the caption for which reads "Lenny Mason, Leicester Fat Boy".....

    It should be noted that the clip's title card does actually use the correct spelling of Lenny Mason.
