A Boy’s Teаrѕ Move Many As He Holds His Baby Sister

The nostalgic images show the capital’s landmarks in the 1970s, a decade of feminism, Arsenal’s FA cup win and the launch of the concord. The era is known for being a time of cultural and political change – especially due to high inflation levels, IRA bomb threats and widespread trade union strikes. These fascinating collection of pictures, taken by photographer David Rostance, reveal what the capital looked like in this bygone era.

“I have been a keen amateur photographer since the age of 13, focussing mainly but not exclusively, on railway subjects,” Rostance told the Standard. He specialised in taking pictures of the UK’s railway and bus routes and began snapping quintessential British scenes in the sixties, armed with his Kodak Brownie 44A. “I began taking photographs in 1963 in a bid to record the rapidly disappearing steam locomotives then still in use at that time,” he said. “My interest waned following the demise of steam operations on British Railways in 1968 and went through an hiatus which lasted until 1975.”More fascinating vintage photographs could be found at Rostance’s amazing Flickr site.
