We stopped in the pleasant Gloucestershire village of Lechlade to have lunch before visiting William Morris’ nearby Kelmscott Manor.  The town had numerous irresistible, multi-dealer “antique” shops, full of old British stuff:  books, posters, costume jewelry, tools, china, pottery–you name it.

The iconic figure of Superman (The Man of Plastic) in one of the shop windows–able to leap bric-a-brac in a single bound– stopped me in my tracks.

What is he doing so far from his home base, Metropolis?

Perhaps, like us, he is on vacation.

Or perhaps, when the shop closes, he flies off to fight for Truth, Justice, and the British Way?

We wanted to ask Clark and Lois, but we couldn’t find them anywhere.
