Old London Not So Drab Shock

London

A great photograph surfaces via the postcard archives of London, showing Piccadilly Circus in 1963, after the austerity of the fifties, before London had yet started to swing. What surprises me is the vividity of the circus-like colours (forced, obviously, but still very jolly – click to enlarge). I also like the way in which the vehicles look like Dinky Toys.
