The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has standardized uniforms for their officers to distinguish them from military personnel. The officers in the picture are seen wearing the "bobby" helmets, open-necked tunics, black overcoats, and trousers, along with black boots or shoes. Here we see a group of kids cheekily mimicking their movements. You know what they say, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!

Apart from their duty to enforce the law in Greater London, the Metropolitan Police also has important national responsibilities. They lead national counter-terrorism efforts and coordinate the protection of senior members of the British Royal Family, Cabinet members, and other government officials.

Studio 54 was home to a diverse group of regulars, including drag queens from all different backgrounds. One of the most famous New York City drag queens of the time was Dame Rollerena, who could often be seen skating along the city streets.

The child who became Rollerena was born and raised in the hills of Kentucky in 1948 and made his way to New York City. He stumbled upon a vintage '50s hat and gown in an antique store on Christopher Street, and when he wore them to a bar, the crowd went wild. According to a tribute website, "the persona of Rollerena was born" on September 16, 1972.
