Vibrant Vintage Color Photos of London in 1973_teo

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.
