In 1978 a Dutch couple Ed Sijmons and his partner Louise visited London. Pointing their cameras away from the usual tourist sites the photographs show a real albeit rather dirty and shabby capital still struggling to escape from the seventies recession.
Ed Sijmons’ fascinating photographs can be found at his wonderful Flickr site.
