Police guard the entrance to Downing Street after the end of a Ban the Bomb march organised by the Labour Party in Trafalgar Square.
One of a number of shots taken from high up in the Vauxhall area. This one looks north toward St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bankside power station (now the Tate Modern).
Noticeable is the lack of buildings taller than St. Paul’s.
The quality on this one isn’t too good, there is a lot of grain and some damage around the edge (I had to crop the image).
I couldn’t find the location of this road joining Glenthorpe Road but the tower of St Paul’s hidden in the background hints at this street now being under the car parks and newly redeveloped Sovereign Court.
I imagine that the pics were taken as the street was about to be demolished to make way for the car park.
If you know more please let me know.
Damage is assessed after a crash in Parliament Square.
