|Caption||A chance word from a tramp (inset) gave Alfred Harmsworth the idea for a competition that involved guessing the amount of gold in the Bank of England and caused an uproar in the streets on the night that the competition closed. Original artwork for the illustrations on pp32-33 of L&L no.624 (29 December 1973).|
