There may be no better indication of the British obsession with boobs than the popular postcard series produced by Bamforth and Company. Bamford apparently has an image collection of 50,000 and still prints them (!) long after US postcard makers have largely given up on this sexist and silly tradition. They may not all come in "pairs" but that's still plenty of postal baggage and boobage. Over there they call the Bamforth cards "seaside humor" but that's no excuse, It's an ISLAND...it's ALL seaside!
Most of these would, I think, date to the 1960s or so. Bamforth had a team of illustrators all versed in gags, a little industry of double D-grade British Bill Wards cranking them out.
