31 Black and White Photos Show King's Cross-an inner city area of London in the 1950s

King's Cross (also Kings Cross) is an inner city area of London, England. It is the location and namesake of King's Cross railway station, one of the major gateways into London from the North.

Formerly a red light district, the area has been regenerated since the mid-1990s with the terminus of the Eurostar rail service at St Pancras International opening in 2007 and the construction of King's Cross Central, a major redevelopment in the north of the area.

These vintage pictures below captured streets around King's Cross & St Pancras stations in the 1950s.
