20th Century London caption: In contrast to the formality of earlier decades, office culture became more relaxed from the 1980s on. This photo was taken in the London Transport head office at 55 Broadway. The styles of dress are informal compared to the stiff suits that had been standard office-wear in the past. There are no personal computers on the desks in the picture. This changed rapidly over the next 10 years and computers became standard office equipment.
