Sarah McCabe, a Canadian friend of mine (and London historian) who came on the tour kindly dug these wonderful pictures out from her father’s visit to Buckingham Palace in 1962. What really struck me was the formal clothes worn by the tourists – no jeans or tracksuits then!


And just for kicks, here’s a great picture of Piccadilly Circus from the same trip!
