1. Penguin Publications. Allen Lane was returning after a weekend with Agatha Christie(Pic 1) when he was stranded on the Exeter Station with no book to read. That's when it occurred to him that a line of books at the cost of 6 pence could make a world of difference. This marked the birth of Penguin publications and the Penguincubator(pic 3) which was a book vending machine installed at stations.

2. Kilroy of the "Kilroy was here" grafitti fame.
