Now for some more recent history.  Recognise the chap on the left below?  Yes, it's Tony Blair!  The date is 1 May 1997 and he has just won the general election.  He was then living at 1 Richmond Crescent and his neighbour Annita was on hand to capture these priceless images of the massively labour-supporting locals enthusiastically cheering him on (this was Islington, after all :-)).
