Doing the Lambeth Walk

Shot with Olympus E510
After Lambeth Bridge, I had to bring you down to Lambeth Walk. Well, let's be honest, you wouldn't normally get there, and if you did you wouldn't find much of interest except this Healthcare Centre. The song featured in "Me and My Girl", a musical first aired in 1937; the song became a symbol of the London cockney spirit in the Blitz.

You can see a stage version of it here, a version with goose stepping Nazis (edited back in the 40's) here.
