London, my London! The West End buildings are still there (although Downing Street is a no-go area for tourists now), but the East End where I grew up has changed beyond all recognition. Now instead of slums are hundreds of ‘Yuppie’ flats along the river where the docks used to be.

Sights Of London in 1951 …

This is a British Pathé production from 1951 called Sights Of London. It was a film intended to promote tourism. Note that George VI was still the king at this time. All very British of course.
