    Very nice. This thread title should have been in all caps.

    I totally saw you there....4:38, in the hat, looking back at the camera. You were a dapper lad. No wonder you like this vid....it was a special time. icon_razz.gif

    I will say the Marble Arch seemed much bigger in RL than it did in this video. And otherwise it was just odd seeing London with so many low buildings...even the Tower of London seemed naked.

    Great that vids like this exist. Thanks Metta.


    About 10,000 lads and 10,000 hats. I'm sure I'm there someplace, but I couldn't find me. I know I was there.

    It was a special time indeed.

    "More than one American has offered to buy up our Tower and erect it on Palm Beach as a bungalow."

    Priceless commentary!

    And prophetic, since an American did buy the London Bridge. Though I would rather call this a vintage color FILM, shown today on video.
