A chap ,bottom centre, has been distracted from closely studying a lamp post. A couple of small groups look up rather dejectedly, perhaps they are unemployed.

Plenty of time to stand and stare when you are that far off of the ground and the foreman is hopefully in his office.

Of the five people on the pavement near the Sutton & Co lorry, four are looking up at the aircraft. The fifth one has his back to us and appears deep in thought. I wonder if the little mobile stall, or possibly a barrel organ,is his?
