Fascinating Vintage Snapshots of London in 1978

This post was originally published on this site

In 1978, Ed Sijmons and his partner Louise took a trip to London. Their grainy snapshots show a gritty look at the capital city at the time when many people were still struggling to make ends meet after the mid-1970s recessions, while the early 1980s recession was already on the horizon.

More fascinating photographs could be found at Sijmons’ brilliant Flickr site.
