Photographs that are said to offer a ?snapshot of Churchillian Post War spirit? have been revealed for an auction later this month.

The 1950s photos, by photographer Grace Robertson, show a group of women on a series of pub outings, laughing, dancing, forming a conga line and going on a theme park ride.

The images, which appeared in legendary photojournalism publication Picture Post are set to go under the hammer as part of an auction of photography at Bonhams, London on 20 May.

Robertson said: ?I can?t recall ever having been present at a more high-spirited gathering of like-minded people who, for a few hours, gave themselves utterly to the enjoyment of the moment,?

The pictures also include La Dolce Vita, Knightsbridge, 1950 by Thurston Hopkins, – estimated to fetch up to £1,500 – and Wolfgang Sushitzsky?s Charing Cross Road, London, 1937.
