Vintage Snapshots of Streets of London in the 1970s

This post was originally published on this site

These evocative snapshots of London were taken by Swedish tourist Mats Örn in 1971 and 1977. They reveal what the capital city looked like in this bygone era, which is well known for being a time of cultural and political change – especially due to high inflation levels, IRA bomb threats, widespread trade union strikes and feminism.

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