My Vintage London

Let's just say I've spent quite a bit of time on this website examining its fascinating photos. Trafalgar Square in the 50's? Yes, please! I'm especially intrigued by the World War II photos. With the exception of Pearl Harbor, we never saw that war come into our cities like Europe did. I can't imagine taking shelter on the tube tracks or a massive zeppelin above the Thames. And even though there have been tons of movies illustrating these events, nothing is quite like seeing the man on the street's view of the real thing. Also, Bonus website! We're having a heat wave here in London, so here's a throw back to another heat wave-- of the 1920's.
