Views around London from 1980

I said a couple of weeks ago that I had discovered a whole load of colour slides in my late father’s office and that I am working through scanning them. In fact, I’ve discovered that I can get much better results by duplicating them using a slide duplicator I’ve bought and I’ve also discovered that not all the slides were ones that he took – some are pictures my bother took when he was in the merchant navy, and some are pictures I took when I first left home and paid visits to London.

The last set of pictures I posted were from a trip to London Zoo. This set of images come from around London and were taken about 1980. I remember also taking some images in central London – specifically at 10 Downing street, so I will probably add them to this post once I’ve duplicated them. In the meantime, here are some snapshots taken around London with either a Petri MF-1 or an Olympus OM-20 on Kodachrome 64 and duplicated my re-photographing them on my Nex 6. They are not particularly good pictures, but they are of interest to me because I remember the day I took them and so they have sentimental value.

As with the other sets, you can view the pictures in greater detail by following this link and seeing them at full size.


I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
