I’ve just started to go through my old photo albums and scan in some of the more interesting London images.
What I Know About This Photo.
The chap standing on the left is my grandfather’s step-father. He was one of the founders of the Met Police’s flying squad. A highly trained fast response police driver. I can assume that they have attended a burglary or attempted burglary at A. Cobden the jewellers.
On the rear of the photograph is the stamp of: Planet News Ltd, 3 Johnson’s Court, London EC4.
Leading me to believe this was indeed a press photograph of an incident.
