Believing in visually arresting pop culture

Bert Hardy

Title: Busy Streets, Piccadilly, 1953.

Description: Silver Gelatin Print, initially taken for Picture Post on July 4th, 1953, printed later and signed in pen. Unknown edition size. But possible printed to order. This is such an evocative image from a time gone by. A beautiful image from a master of photography. I love seeing advertising from the time and wonder if Frank’s Barber Shop could afford to advertise in the same way today!

There’a also a retropsective of his work coming up later this month which is only going to increase interest in the work of this incredible photographer.

Original Publication: Picture Post No 6576, Know Your Piccadilly, published 1953

Dimensions: 35.5 x 23.5 cm (Image) 50 x 60.5 cm (Framed)
