Black and White Photos of London From the Late 1970s

These photographs were taken by Australian amateur photographer John Goodman. He made two trips to the United Kingdom in the mid-seventies. During his “raw early 20s”, Goodman pursued his interests in microscopy, photography and industrial archaeology. He was a member of the Quekett Microscopical Club in London. Goodman now resides in Melbourne, Australia.

He mostly used Leica and film, or digital cameras with old Leitz lenses. Take a look through these beautiful pictures of London in the late 1970s taken by Goodman. For more photographs, visit Goodman’s wonderful Flickr site.
