Vanishing London

No 18 in an occasional series of extracts from The Postcard Century
November 1990: Dave and Sue to Mr and Mrs C in Merseyside. Arrived OK, Sue has cramp in her hands never out of her purse or writing cheques so I am writing this, very cold, very crowded and expensive see you Friday.
This looks a bit like rentabobby meets rent-a-punk-or-two. To make it even more of a London scene they stand in front of the all but vanished telephone boxes. As so often, the postcard depicts as typical that which is almost no longer there (which could also be said of policeman on the beat).
