Londoners Relax on Tower Beach, 1952

Man sitting on Tower Beach reading News of the World so the photo was taken on a Sunday! Wonderful clarity and a nostalgic view of post-war East Enders enjoying a Thames Beach which is still visible today but regrettably no longer accessible by the public. A closer look shows Thames barges moored mid-river and dockside cranes - all things of the past now but truly part of London's heritage. I have it hanging in the lobby by might have to move it because visitors are glued to it. Highly recommended if you love London.
