It always seems a bit of a waste to have such great portraits in a place where so many people hurry past...

Excellent observation!

The portraits are looking on wisely, they know. The passers-by seem totally oblivious. That's the beauty of such installations, to the objective observer at least.
This is superb, I wish I had taken it.

Tri-X... Happy memories... I'm working on getting that quality of black digitally but it's not the same.
I keep coming back here. This does what I want street photography to do, it links disparate elements into a whole.

Thanks Moira, really appreciate your comments. Have you looked at NIKSoftware SilverFX PRO, it does a very good rendering of TRI-X. But I do still prefer to shoot film, just has that something digital does not.

Yes I'm using Silver Efex, it's been like a shot of adrenaline, it gives real blacks and I can get grain that looks like grain.
Our film SLRs disappeared in a burglary a good few years ago, and we made the decision then to go 100% digital. I just get hopelessly nostalgic from time to time.
