Allen Lane, creator of Penguin Books

It's the birthday of the creator of Penguin Books, Sir Allen Lane, born Allen Williams in Bristol, England (1902).
Penguins, be it orange or blue played a large part in my personal library in the 1960s and 70s because they made it possible to read a wide range of foreign classics otherwise unavailable to me.
