In a 1980s note in the Scrapbook Hans Richard points out that he stayed in the “splendid” (“prunk”) hotel seen in the background: The Cumberland, in 1979.  He has added two exclamation marks next to the note.  Twenty five years after his 1954 visit to London, he is doing alright financially.

Spiv,Oxford St 19 PNG


This is a suitcase salesman. In the 1940s men like this were called Spivs, usually selling black market goods. The man to his right is probably his look-out, who has got distracted by the allure of the woman. The suitcase salesman is selling ladies purses. Plain clothes CID policemen used to travel on the top deck of London Transport buses, in the front seats, to spot sellers like this and ring the bell and jump off to ‘nab’ them, hoping to outwit the look-out.
