London Night in the 1930’s

April 4, 2013 | in Vintage

These pictures were taken almost a century ago, in the desert gloomy streets of the capital of UK by two renowned photographers: John Morrison and Harold Burdekin.

The photos were brought from the book London Night, which was never reissued, and the only edition was released back in 1934. The pictures were taken long before people of London began to think about the environment. Therefore, in the photos, the gloomy background is created not only by the classic British fog, but also by terrible smog. When viewing these images, it gives the impression that in such quiet streets you could’ve meet Jack the Ripper and other creepy characters from the London history.
