1975 London

439. London 1975

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

Some shots from the West End and then a Tall Ship at Tower Bridge.

I’ve no idea if the same buildings are there now as it is just one giant hoarding.

A quick search tells me these next two are of the ARA Libertad Q2, an Argentinian training ship. The shot was taken during the August 1975 Festival of Sail at London Pool.

The big ship is HMS Belfast. The hole off its port side is probably Southwark Crown Court. I did jury service there and I think some guns were pointing straight at us whilst we waited to get called.
