David wrote "This photograph was taken on a 1949 school trip to London by coach, organised by Mr Gwilliam. It was a first visit to the capital for most of us. We watched Tottenham Hotspur play
in a First Division football match at White Hart Lane, had tea with the Mayor and Mayoress of Harringey at Hornsey Town Hall, and in the evening watched Harringey Racers play ice hockey. The
late arrival home meant an overnight stay in Yeovil, courtesy of Mr and Mrs Gwilliam, for two or three village boys, myself included. In the photograph we are being shown the Harringey mayoral mace."
