Item description:

See scan - perfect condition for this rare Great Britain / English postcard showing a picture of the Lincoln devil. One of the nice British postcards. there is a text at the card saying that the original of this quaint figure is to be found in the Angel Choir in Lincoln Cathedral, where it commemorates the legend of how the devil endeavoured to frustrate the building of the Cathedral. He is represented as heis said to have sat jeering at the workmen. lincoln College, Oxford, having been founded by Robert Fleming, Bishop of Lincoln, and still having the Bishop of that diocese for their visitor, have adopted this figure as a kind of symbol or emblem. It is found high up on the wall on the front quadrangle, and a wooden replica, formerly carried by the coxswain during 'Eights', still hangs in the College barge. Creepy.
