Re: One born every minute

I haven't been to Oxford Street for years to say. But I was googling after writing this and there was a Reddit conversation from last month that says they're still operating.

I used to go in and watch them to amuse myself. They did genuinely give a few bits away to hype up the crowd. I remember getting a sandwich toaster with toasted cheese stuck to it so God knows where it came from. The only thing I kept was a Russian manufactured transistor radio which looks pretty retro so maybe I'll sell it some day.
