Ah, 1953…the Queen’s coronation. But post-war London had a grim edgeThe 1950s wasn’t all apple pie and gleaming housewives. In fact, tour guide Barrie is taking you on a trip past some of London’s first jazz clubs, the fringes of Soho’s red light district, and early drinking dens. In those austere times, the heady bebop of Soho must have been an intoxicating mix. As Barrie tells you the stories of struggling artists and singers, through a mixture of photographs and personal stories, you follow in the footsteps of people who changed London as we know it.
