Petticoat Lane In The 1960s
Anyone who remembers London in the 1960s will remember how vibrant and exciting it all felt. Carnaby Street, Piccadilly Circus Petticoat Lane, as a child I remember how much I enjoyed visits "into town". Incredibly, with hardly any traffic on the road we could drive from Surrey into central London in 40 minutes to have a look round and Sundays were often spent window shopping when all the shops were closed. How sad those days have gone. I have added this photo of Carnaby Street in 1968 to the London section. There certainly was a buzz of activity there.
More photos of London in the 1960s, 70, and 80s are available here.
I have a booklet "Souvenin Guide To Petticoat Lane" There is no date on it, BUT it is OVER 100 years old as it belonged to my Grandmother (British). Is it of any value, historically or otherwise.?
