London Portrait of a City 1950-1962, Paperback Book


With over 120 unique images of people and places in London in the fifties and sixties, London: Portrait of a City 1950-1962 paints a picture of England's multifaceted capital in a decade of great change and development.

From grand monuments to innocuous street corners, famous faces to passers-by, this selection of evocative photographs captures the very essence of London life in the mid-twentieth century. A keen photographer since childhood, Allan Hailstone's beautiful images are a tribute to London at what he remembers as a magical time.

Fogs, Soho at night, the remnants of St Giles, lost theatres ... here is just a taste of how things were.
