    I'm guessing by the shirts it was in the 50s as the style then was v-necked. The Corinthian Casuals were formed in 1939 from the amalgamation of The Casuals FC and Corinthians FC so taking the war years out that's my guesswork...

    'Coffin' beds in a doss house cost around 4d, but if you unable to afford even that meagre amount you could sleep over a rope for 1d...

    By the way the building at the very end with the columns is Federal Hall where George Washing was signed in as the 1st US President.

    Looks like there were ‘things’ in there in the ‘then’ picture, when were you sliding down, 1893?

    I nearly broke my coccyx sliding down the escalator at Notting Hill Gate. I was about 40 at the time.

    A group of gents enjoy an impromptu snowball fight in the serene and stately setting of Trafalgar Square, London, circa 1931.
