Petticoat Lane In The 1960s

June 14, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

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.
