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.

About the Author:

Allan Hailstone was born in Coventry. While at school, he paid many visits to London, and in 1957 left Coventry to study at London University. His camera always went with him, and the reels of film and their accompanying notes grew in size. He visited many other countries and recorded life as he saw it. Throughout his adult life, Allan never lost his passion for photography, and has amassed an archive of hundreds of images.
