I know the date of this photograph.  Since I can’t see any other clues, I’m testing your fashion knowledge. What year do you think the above photograph was taken?  

The location is Trafalgar Square in London.


  1. its gona be a bit hard as people in London do not blindly follow fashion, as each has his own style.

    Unlike here when something is in,suddenly everyone is dressed same.

    I couldn’t zoom in !! but i would say around 1997-1998

  2. I would say mid 90’s

    Six, Eight pockets
    Straight fit
    Dirty blonde hair style
    Waist strap belts

    This is not the 70s bellbottom era
    nor the 90’s parrel, baggy pants era.

    I would say early to mid 80s.

  3. I’m thinking 1996 because I still see pigeons! And that guy on right wearing red is wearing some tight jeans.. damnnnn tight! lol

  4. Ok – I don’t want this to become silly 🙂

    Thank you for the guesses… In fact it was 2008! I guess they really are behind in London (or is it the tourists?)

    I posted this after reading a post by Mark (of 248am) with photos of Kuwait in the ’60s. It also reminded his photos from Munich. I looked again at the photos taken with my father’s 30 year old camera and I was telling my wife that I would like to take it again on holiday to get the “vintage” look on some of the shots.

    I thought of uploading a photo and seeing a reaction. Unfortunately most of them had clues of London in 2008 – and the above one doesn’t really look that old.

    Have a look at this post if you’vbe started reading my blog recently 🙂

    Thanks again.

  5. 2008 ! I never would have guessed it ! LOL maybe they are a little behind ib fashion 🙂
