They introduced their culture and musical traditions to other Londoners. Today, over two million people attend the carnival.

    7- A man wore these underpants. Why do they have a map printed on them?

    Answer: Sailor.
    Sailor suits were fashionable for boys in England from Victorian times until about the 1920s. In the 20th century, older boys wore the tops with knee-length shorts called knickerbockers. Very little boys wore theirs with skirts!
