*gets misty-eyed*

Shaft-me Avenue

These pictures are of Glittering London in the 1940s. A time when you could leave your back door open, gay homosexual bumming was punishable by public lashings atop Nelson’s Column, people were never more than 4 feet 2 inches tall owing to a diet of coal lumps and whatever was floating past on t’River Thames, it took three days to walk the length of the Kings Road because everybody stopped to curtsey one another and sing a rendition of ‘Let’s All Go Down To The Strand (Have A Banana)’, crinoline was in worryingly short supply, Queen Victoria was long dead and Angela Lansbury was already 47.

Want more? More, we ask thee?

Also Shaft-me Avenue Off Sloane Square, apparently. We'll take their word for it. No freakin' idea.

These pictures are from here.

  1. Look! No cars! Was that a jibe at OUR Angela? I hope not. I love his posts to death. So witty, so spot on.

  2. Angela Lansbury rang. She said … errrr … “Fuck you in your Blackwall Tunnel”. Sparky, Miss Ange.
