"The Brigton Team" - a group of young men in Bridgeton, just before the First World War.
This photograph was taken in Colbert Street, behind the ice cream parlour. It provides a splendid record of male, working class fashions of the day - the youngsters are dressed to kill in their smart suits, polished boots, buttoned-up waistcoats and neatly-knotted ties. Their broad flat caps were also highly fashionable, although they might seem a little strange to the modern eye .
Jack Johnston is second from the left. He was a railway carter who emigrated to Canada after the First World War.
