London Town 54, the photographs of Hans Richard Griebe
London Town ’54 is a unique online collection of photographs taken in London in the late summer of 1954 by Hans Richard Griebe, a German attending a six week course in conversational and colloquial English at the London School of English.
Hans Richard Griebe took hundreds of photos whilst in London and pasted them into a scrap book in 1954. Pete Grafton acquired the scrap book in 2008, and from it he has selected and restored a great many of the photos.
Besides taking photos of London, Hans Richard went on excursions, including travelling on the Royal Sovereign pleasure boat down to Southend on Sea.
