Vibrant Vintage Color Photos of London in 1973

These pictures were taken by Flickr user AntyDiluvian during his trip to London in September 1973. The capital city was the first stop in a month-long European tour he and his wife took on their own. 

The man wasn't impressed with the food at all. “Much of the food we tried in London — and in England generally — was bland, tasteless, and (in restaurants) overcooked, as we’d been told it would be.” He wrote. “Saying no to it was easy.”

Take a look at London in 1973 through these 30 vibrant pictures below. For more fascinating photographs, take a look at his brilliant Flickr site.
