35 Rare Vintage Photographs Capture Street Scenes of London From the 1920s and Early 1930s

George Reid took over 700 photographs of London over the course of a decade, from 1920 to 1933. He died before his work was completed, though, with the portable, consumer cameras that became more than commonplace after his death, he would have been happy to know his work is still continuing to this day.
