In "London The Biography" appears a photo (caption: Billingsgate Porters, Hats...etc.) attributed to "Covent Garden Porters" by John Thomson, courtesy Museum of London. After contacting the photographic curator I learned this is incorrect. I am interested in the image because my grandfather is standing behind the porters wearing a trilby hat and scarf. This picture is truly heartwarming to my family as he died during the Blitz, December 1940. After extensive research neither the Museum of London, nor myself have been able to discover the location of the photo. Any information you could provide would be most appreciated!
