Colour Slides of London, October 1978

Share this:

“I was backpacking around the world,” writes Terry from Sydney. He arrived in the UK in October 1978. “My return ticket from Sydney to Europe arrived and departed from London. Although I was travelling for about 7 months, I only spent a week at each end of the trip in London. I spent most of the time in France and the USA. London was my first experience of being in a foreign land and of being a foreigner.

“I remember the man selling daffodils because he had a very loud, rough voice. His accent was like one of the characters in the TV show Steptoe and Sons. However, instead of scrap iron, he was selling these beautiful flowers.”

  • Really enjoying all these collections…

    Only one request: would it be possible to implement some way for page down/space to land on the next image? It’d make the reading experience so much better!
