London in the 1950s Through Amazing Color Photos

The 1950s London was the heyday of the baby boomers. There was no longer rationing post war and the city was undergoing huge social and economic change. A new Queen was in charge of the country who was vibrantly popular and hope hung in the air for a new era.

 London in the 1950s It was also the decade when televisions and washing machines first appeared in houses, something that would transform the housewives day-to-day, and the standard of living was generally improving as council houses offered respected alternatives to slums and the welfare state was in full bloom. A set of amazing color photos from foundin_a_attic that shows what London looked like in the 1950s.  Admiralty Arch from the Mall, London
