Item #: 149
Source: Picture Post. November 12, 1938
Please compere this photograph with another on this site . " An Evening Pint in The Feathers" . The same city , the same year , but absolutely
worlds apart. T'was ever thus!.
I' m not sure these two were very ordinary even in 1938, they don't look like they've just been working in the mills or mines. The strange thing is I think I'm an ordinary bloke, and I have too many tattoos to be let in the Cafe Royal but I like nothing more than a talk about The Yellow Book and Oscar Wilde's witticisms.
Why have you got a chinese spring roll on your head
"and breath my dear, it's not that kind of cigarette!"
"I do believe a rare hawk moth is pupating in your hair my dear"
I'll have that sausage roll if you're not keeping it for later?
