Seventies City Celebrations

This morning I scanned the double spread pages of

of which this is the book jacket,

and this, the Title Page and Frontispiece.

As will be apparent, my scanner cannot take the entire width of the book so I have, perforce, trimmed each side taking care to nip off the less important elements.

The small volume was published in 1975 and therefore contains much nostalgia for one who grew up in London from 1942.

In order not to swamp readers today, the second half of the pages will be held over until tomorrow. All can be enlarged by accessing the gallery.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.
