Can't let this image slip below the fold without at least one comment. I love it because it represents Old Britain and New Britain meeting circa 1963 or so. Beaton the established fashion/portrait photographer, Searle the young "radical" cartoonist -- finding common ground, I suppose, in a flawless graphic composition, with that bright red lamp popping out of the image. Nice find.

Sadly, Ronald Searle has passed away late last year.
