Thirties Thursday

It wasn't all gloom and doom during the 1930s. Here's a quick video of goings-on high above the Picadilly traffic in London.

Such scamps!


  1. Elspeth - Thanks, as ever, for sharing these wonderful looks at life in the '30's. I just love those bathing suits! They're not daring by today's standards, but they're so feminine. And who'd've guessed that all took place way, way aboveground?

  2. Oh yes, I'd like one of those swimsuits - and if I was one of those blokes in the orchestra, I'd be rolling up my trouser legs at the very least :-)

  3. Margot; Isn't this video great?

    Sarah; I'd be worried about the instruments what with all the splashing, etc.

  4. oh, to be there. I suppose they were working though. Just seems so carefree doesn't it?


Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
