HISTORY -- Donald Fraser Gould McGill, (28 January 1875 ' 13 October 1962) was an English graphic artist whose name has become synonymous with a whole genre of saucy seaside postcards that were sold mostly in small shops in British coastal towns. The cards feature an array of attractive young women, fat old ladies, drunken middle aged men, honeymoon couples and vicars. He has been called 'the king of the saucy postcard', and his work is still collected and appreciated for his artistic skill, its power of social observation and earthy sense of humour. Even at the height of his fame he only earned three guineas a design, but today his original artwork can fetch thousands of pounds.

She served in World War II as a transport in the Mediterranean. The Arundel Castle was withdrawn from service in 1958 and taken to the ship breakers in Hong Kong.
