Interesting for Lamp post fans like me-

so... Harringay Arena's concrete standards were pre-war ! I always thought post-war.. and as for the ladies .. I presume these are Americans? There hairdo's look positively 1960s or are they helmets?(especially the two on the far left, who look like something out of Star Trek)

Such sights must've been a bit of a crowd puller for the local "lads" ??
