Who Do You Think You Are - David Bailey?

Here's a story from the Camden Lock days. Our David was working in his studio one day, and some guy came in and started looking at prints and asking questions. David was in the middle of something and maybe a bit short with the visitor - after all, lots of people were coming in and out all the time, it was a popular place.

Anyway, this particular visitor decided to buy a thing or two.  And he wanted to pay by credit card. Now this was the mid 1970s, and credit cards were quite new, and very few small traders would take credit cards.  So in characteristic style, David swiftly replied, "Credit card? Who do you think you are, David Bailey?"

 Yep - that exactly who it was!
