Beautiful London in 1970 Through Fascinating Color Snaps

The 1970s was a decade made for rebels, music, sport, feminism, protests, and pure unadulterated fun. The first Pride march of 1971 ended up in Trafalgar Square, the first Concorde flight to JFK airport left Heathrow in 1977.

Let's head back to the streets of London in 1970 through fascinating color snapshots taken by Harold Slatore.
