A brilliant gallery of grubby London despatchers shot by photographer Phil Crean in 1986. Captures it perfectly; I’m sure glad someone did this. I recognise the old Centrale of course, and maybe a couple of faces and a lot of red-hot Rukka action. If this was your time on the circuits, you may too.
And here’s a vid from Thames TV (Euston Tower, NW1, a regular drop) from a couple of years later by which time the proliferation of motorcycle couriers and their antics was becoming a little too conspicuous – the beginning of the end. Thanks to aspieman for digging them both up.
