Full description from the producer:

A unique collection of fascinating short films showing different aspects of life in London in the 1940s and 1950s. Take a tour of the city in the early 50s, follow an East End family on their annual working holiday in Kent for the hop-picking; look back at the war years, when Londoners found themselves in the front line, and experience the joyful celebrations when it was finally over; enjoy a trip along the Thames in the mid 50s then go underground to see work in progress on the Dartford Tunnel, and last but not least, step back in time for a romantic view of bygone London.
