Street-sellers of the Belfast Telegraph head out along Royal Avenue with their stands and bags. Up until last year, there were multiple printings of the paper and most people in Belfast are old enough to remember sellers flooding the streets at about four o’clock in the afternoon, calling out “Sixth-late-tele” all incomprehensibly slurred together. Today there is only one edition of the Tele each day.
On the move to a single edition in 2012, see Slugger O’Toole | BBC. On the incomprehensibility of street-sellers’ cries: Morecambe & Wise’s ‘Morny Stannit’ street-seller sketch.
