The rain held off just enough!
The crowd formed above the steps however...the stand is in a dip that's part of all that modern stuff comprising London's City Hall. Essentially, anyone taking a stroll along the Thames stopped in astonishment to hear music from 1901, 1924, 1933 issuing forth from an area that normally features rock, blues and the occasional folk. So we caused quite a jam for the Thames-side promenaders!
There were City-workers with their sandwiches, a well-behaved set of schoolchildren, several retired people, mums and their
toddlers, young hipsters, tourists. They all loved it, thank the Lord.
