Illustration Friday - "Wide" No.2

Half a minute! What's this?

A Spiv or WIDE Boy (Latin: Puer Pansus) on the Streets of London, confident and shifty all at once. This Flash 'Arry thinks he's Errol Flynn or maybe Chet Baker even, though in truth he's just a petty crim from Whitechapel out to make a bob or two. It's Post-WWII for sure (the light's are on!) but pre-51 'cos there's rationing still on. "What you after Missis? Nylons? Valium? French Letters? Chops? A bit o' How's-yer-father?!"
