Isn't it strange how things happen, I've just been looking at some photos of Elvet Bridge and lo and behold I come on here !
In America this week it was their Memorial Day.
This is in honour of them.

Images of England in 1953 from the National Geographic.
Remember Rag Day? The Cloud is traditional flour bombs. The Trad Jazz band all the rage at college. The 'cave' needless to say was full of beer (in bottles in those days)
Excellent photos Mark.
The 'now' photo of the Liverpool Waterfront taken from Wiki looks distinctly odd, more like a montage than an actual photo. Not the waterfront I know.
Great pics Mark, like the Wembley photo, you can see the team in the upper half lining up in the old 2-3-5 Pyramid formation, two full backs, three half backs and centre forward,two inside forwards and two wingers, jumpers for goalposts days.
Here's a link to the English Heritage spin-off site for the aerial photos of pre-war Britain.
There seems to be a bit of a problem with the site at the moment as it seems to be popular.

Look at Life
A report on a river . . . the Thames from its source to the London docks. A great piece of film, which also gives the name of the narrator who has that familiar voice you remember from the cinema intermissions. There are other Look at Life films on YT as well.
I used to work with the bloke who put this together.
