Tin Clad Knight Stands Guard Duty Over Parking Lot
COMPLETELY encased in glittering armor from his helmeted head to his tin clad toes, an English car park attendant is furnishing a quaintly medieval note to a distinctly modern scene.
Daily he stands guard over the automobiles parked at the Tudor House in the Kentish town of Bearsted, moving cumber-somely about his duties, clad in his unusual costume.
Tourists visiting the district for the first time have the curious feeling that the pages of history are being turned backward.
