Jamaican emigrants arrive at Waterloo Station 22nd September 1954
A train load of hopes reached London when nearly 700 Jamaicans arrived In search of work. Among them were these two married, sisters (left): Mrs. Louisa and Mrs. Violet Johnston. As they sat on their suitcases at Waterloo Station they said that all their lives they had done things together. Now they have emigrated as " breadwinners." Their husbands are out of work back in Kingston. They hope to get jobs here" then our husbands will follow us." Most of the arrivals were men. Many said they had work to go to. or relatives to live with. Half of them plan to stay in London. The rest are bound for the Midlands and the North. Since the beginning of the year (1954) more than 6, 000 Jamaicans have arrived in Britain
