This photograph was printed in Geographical Magazine in April 1938 to accompany an article written by Tom Harrisson about “The Fifty Second Week”. The original caption read:

A streamlined boat-tram passing an ornate lamp-post, part ‘modernist’ and part ‘archaic’, and a genuine old cab. Some people sample these conveyances: others dive straight into the familiar Woolworth’s and there remain.
