Caribbeans Arriving In England: Style, Elegance and Class

I discovered these photos and sat marveling at the profound history staring back at me. Afro-Caribbeans began immigrating to Britain in droves to fill shortages in the labor market after World War II. My own grandparents migrated and lived in London for years before returning back to Jamaica. 

There is so much style, elegance, and impeccable dignity in these photos. Look at the little girls' matching coats, dresses and hats!!! These photos are inspiring.
