Erik van Straten, now 61 years old, was in London for one week in April 1974. Aged just 19 he took some beautiful photos during his short holiday with his black Nikkormat FTn camera and using Kodak TriX film.
Although the exact location of many of these pictures are unknown they are all undeniably of the capital.
More of Erik’s photography can be found at his Flickr site.
