London Underground Life in the 1970s and 80s captured on camera by Bob Mazzer


Bob Mazzer, now aged 65, originally from Whitechapel, chronicled life on London Underground back in the 70s and 80s. He worked as a film projectionist in King's Cross and used his trusty Leica M4 to take photos, capturing and encapsulating the tube scene through the 35mm lens.
"I felt the Tube was mine and I was there to take pictures. It was like a party", he told the Evening Standard. He has quite a collection of images of rockers, punks, old ladies, people asleep or half-asleep in the carriages, couples kissing, drinkers, smokers, kids playing... Let's all hark back to the bygone good old times of the metro system in London!

  6. I love these photos, so cool to have them to look back on, and an awesome collection of so many different people from the time. I must say though, it looks a lot less busy then!

  7. Where do you find these images?! I love this one even more than the Paris one. The clock head one is so cute and I love all the punk rockers. They all look really cute and not badass at all.
