Memories of London

If you live or have ever visited London you will know what a busy and vibrant place it is in the twentieth century.  Of course, it has been like that for centuries – we have pictures and engravings which prove just that.

Yet with the advent of the moving picture, organisations like the BBC were able to begin recording the English capital on film.

In this – memories of London – we see the city in black and white, but the scenes of the place from the fifties and sixties show that in some ways the place hasn’t changed a bit. 

However, in terms of fashion perhaps we can be satisfied that we have moved on a little!
