16 Fantastic Vintage Photographs of Piccadilly Circus at Night in the 1950s

When the sun goes down, the neon heart of London comes alive...

Piccadilly Circus is a busy square in the heart of London. It is famous for the fountain that was installed here at the end of the nineteenth century and for the neon advertising.

The Circus lies at the intersection of five main roads: Regent Street, Shaftesbury Avenue, Piccadilly Street, Covent Street and Haymarket. It was created by John Nash as part of the future King George IV's plan to connect Carlton House - where the Prince Regent resided - with Regent's Park.

Here's 16 fantastic vintage photographs that capture Piccadilly Circus at night during the 1950s.
