33 Fascinating Black and White Photos of London in the Early 1970s

London-based photographer Norman Craig took these fascinating photos that show street scenes of London in the early 1970s.
“I worked in a lot of different buildings in the City from the 1970s to the 1990s. It’s likely I took some snaps in those years. I’ll look through my old negs from time to time to see if there’s anything worth uploading.”
