The cobbles on Merton Street
The cobbles on Merton Street
It's the last day of exams and the students have been out celebrating by covering each other in foam, silly string, flour, confetti, and eggs, and spraying bottles of champagne. The ritual dates back to about 1970 and it is known as 'trashing', marking the end of academia. The after effects can be seen here on the cobbles of Merton Street.
