I still think that this figure in the foreground is that of a soldier,and and it was taken during the summer months or close to summer as the soldier seems to be in what is called in the Army, "Shirt Sleeve Order"  And you can he is wearing a web belt,

The queen mary ship which is on the thames which they use for dances and all sorts. I have a photo of the back of it and I believe see the more rounded spire there. Tried to post but could  not attatch and have resized a bit and will try again later. I think we stayed in a travel lodge in drury lane and we could see the London etc from it and we walked past a few theatre places. So it's that end of the thames.

Perhaps, the Queen's tower, or Westminster Cathedral tower.

[img][0249]   Could this show the buildings? The full size photo is too large to post.

I would say there are far to many  churches in the UK that have spires similar to the one in T/Ts pic and the last one posted to my eyes is completely different ,in T/Ts I only see 2 windows or openings?

I see a man (hatless) wearing baggy trousers, a long sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and a short vest. (30s or 50s style) I'm probably wrong but I just can't get that out of my head.  :)
