“The East End In Colour”: Rare and Gorgeous Kodachrome Photographs of London in the 1960s and 1970s

These previously unpublished photographs by David Granick capture the streets and waterways of London’s East End in the warm hues of Kodachrome film. Journey back in time to a place now long vanished.

David Granick (1912-1980) was a photographer who lived in the East End his whole life. His color slides laid untouched until 2017 when a local photographer, Chris Dorley-Brown, examined them at Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives.

“I was completely blown away by these pictures,” says Dorley-Brown, of the first time he saw Granick’s slides. “I had always suspected that there was a great color collection of East London photographs taken during this era.”
