Jeremy aged three Fresh from a haemorrhoidectomy on his cousin Jeffrey
Jeremy Selman-Troytt  1868-1916

At the age of three years (left) riding a tricycle that was always described as a present from 'Grandada Joshua', even though Joshua Selman-Troytt had been deceased for twenty-two years by the time Jeremy was born.

By a remarkable and unpleasant twist of fate, Jeremy was riding the very same tricycle on the day of his death forty-five years later. Subsequently the tricycle was rejected by the Selman- Troytt family, none of whom would chance to ride it, and was later given to some poor people.

Jeremy at the age of twenty-one (right), shortly after performing a haemorrhoidectomy at the request of his cousin Jeffrey, who was willing to trust the young Jeremy when all others scoffed at him openly. Although the operation was not a success, and his cousin was never able to sit again, Jeremy was always grateful for the boost it gave to his confidence and later wrote that it had provided the impetus for further research and practice.

Special Note for Web Historians
Although there is no definitive proof, The Selman-Troytt Postcard Emporium may be the oldest purveyor of E-cards on the Internet. A copy of our first Royal Warrant may be examined here. Since the granting of this illustrious award we have been patronised by numerous aristocrats, many of whom insist upon using Selman-Troytt cards to express the depth of their affections. Indeed many of our cards - particularly those concerned with incest - have been directly inspired by a close examination of aristocratic lifestyles.
