A gallery showing classic images of the last 50 years in Camden has gone on display.

The free exhibition is being held at the Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre.

It shows iconic images from the first half century of the London Borough of Camden.

Councillor Abdul Hai, whose portfolio includes culture, said: “This in-depth exhibition uses photographs and archives from the Centre’s collections, to examine a wide range of aspects of life in the borough between 1965 and 2015.

“The exhibition demonstrations the richness and variety of life in this fascinating area of London over a period of great change.
