40 Fascinating Photos Capture Street Scenes of London in the Late 1980s

The 1980s were an iconic time for the United Kingdom, and London was at the centre of it all.  Short of a world war, there was probably no other period in which the social and political atmosphere changed so drastically.

 

The 1980s in London was a decade of considerable change. Long established industries, street scenes, shops and ways of life were being swept away.

Unions and family-owned shops gave way to privitisation and impersonal, foreign-owned stores. While some took to the streets in protest, others gathered in Wembley for a concert to bring help to less-fortunate populations.

These fascinating photos of London’s street scenes were taken by David Levine during his trip around Europe in the summer of 1989.
