I'm sure Mr. Blair will be gratified to hear this! :biggrin::biggrin:
What strikes me is we have a TV channel 10. It is owned by NBC. The window above the door sorta resembles the NBC peacock emblem thingy.
It would seem to be a far less innocent place than before!The world is a sad commentary
Ned, it's a converted slide. After scanning it I thought it looked much better as a b&w - not something I do very often!OOoh! What a great shot, holding so much truth!
I love it!
Nice shot - the uniforms the two police officers are wearing take me back too - stab vests, short jackets etc are the norm these days.You used to be able to walk right up to Number 10 and snap away. Not anymore. A sad comment really on the times we live in. Taken 1968 ...
Thanks, Gavin. I guess the significance is that you used to able to walk right up close to the door. Remarkable if you think about it!Great picture. Timeless.
But is there any special significance to number 10? am I missing a reference because I'm too young?? or is it simply that public photography is hard now in London??
Thanks. Now that I think about it this was taken March '69. I was on my way up to Cleethorpes to stay with my aunt and uncle and had a few hours to kill before my train left so some excursions around London. I remember it was pleasantly warm for March and was surprised to see the officers wearing macs!Nice shot - the uniforms the two police officers are wearing take me back too - stab vests, short jackets etc are the norm these days.
Not surprised at all! I remember you mentioning on another post that you had worked for the London Metropolitan Police. Why did you transfer North? To get closer to Scotland? And thanks again for looking and commenting Graeme!Ray, you may be a little surprised to hear this............. but......... I've done that exact job at that exact location!!!!!!!!!!
I was a serving ploice officer with the Metropolitan Police in London for 14 years from 1987 till 2001............. and stood on that doorstep a few times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Scary eh!!!!!!!!!!!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
By the way........... great shot!
