Dont think anybody is denying that,you are welcome to show us some british ones.


I can tell you a story about the door of a boarding house being slammed in my face when I enquired about a room when we were doing some construction work adjacent to Heathrow airport. The lady thought I was Irish.


Still being mistaken for Irish was better than being seen as black. They were often greeted with signs outside boarding houses saying "Sorry no coloured people"

Nobody said it wasn't, let's not turn this into a thread about race though eh !


I like the fact everyone is dressed so smart :D gotta love the old cars aswell


Yep! Smartly dressed smelling of tobacco smoke and Brut 69 or Old Spice. The women looked sharp too until you kissed them and got a mouthful of nicotine fumes


As for the old cars, junk on wheels most of them. Complete engine overhauls and cylinder rebores after 50K miles
