I Once Was Lost…

Excuse the odd quality of our pic today – it was taken through glass on a sunny day at one of London’s most famous buildings…

Baker Street is famous the world over as the home of Sherlock Holmes. But Londoners also know it as the place to find London Underground’s Lost Property Office.

As we passed by yesterday, this topper in the window caught our eye – lost and then found in 1951 at Euston Underground station. Perhaps the wearer was off to the Festival of Britain gala performance of Antony and Cleopatra starring Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh?

If you know of anyone who lost a top hat 60 years ago, tell them they can get a smashing new one HERE.

Coming Next Week on The Hornet… The Guv’nor will be carrying on about shoes (ooh, he does carry on!); he’ll also be waxing rhapsodic on the topic of colour; and he’ll be getting ready for Goodwood with more vintage motoring mallarkey.
