Punks, Mods, Teds and Hippies – London Underground Photos in the 1970s.

I was interested to come across an article in the UK Daily Mail (see link below) of photos by Bob Mazzer, who lives in London and who took a camera with him on the underground every day when he commuted to work in the 1970s.

Some of his photos are outstanding, some eerie and others just grimly capture the monochrome mood of 1970s London and the UK, which is a theme I also deal with in my Punk and New Wave memoir, Bombed Out!.
