"There are a couple of clues to the
possible date of this photo.
One of the headlines is 'Bottomley
Five years in Hell?' The swindler Horatio Bottomley was imprisoned
in 1922 and served 5 years, being released in 1927.
On the right, a sporting paper
advertises 'Murray's Diary for August. The poster is a bit tatty,
looking as if it had been there a couple of months, so I would
guess that this photo was taken a bit nearer the end of 1927.
There is another headline 'Atlantic
Flown Again', probably referring to the crossing of the South
Atlantic by air by Costes and Le Brix on 14-15 October 1927, the
second non-stop crossing of the Atlantic by air, the first having
been by Lindbergh in May that year.
So I'd plump therefore for round about
early November 1927. I don't know whether the rest of the
photos might date from around this time.
