London VE Day Photos found

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

In a book bought from a charity shop I have found 2 photos of what looks like a London street party on VE day?

One has tables in the shape of a V the other 2 tables.

They are full of odd crockery and little plates of food.

The people consist of lots of children and women (3 women are together holding an American flag around them)

There are very few men............only 1 in an army uniform, the others are fairly elderly.

On the back of both photos is the name of Fox Photos Ltd, 6 Tudor Street London EC4.printed in red ink with the pencilled in number 3246354 on one and 324636 on the other.

They must belong to someone out there, how do I go abut finding who owned them??

Any suggestions welcomed as I have no idea where to start.

l think you'll find that Dizzi found something similar once and also found the owners, it might have been a family bible, not sure.
Hopefully someone can help out though:)

What a lovely find:)

Hi Kitty why not upload the pictures, someone here might know the road perhaps.

This current thread on another board explains how.
