Trafalgar Square, London

Allan Hailstone’s photograph of Trafalgar Square in 1955 shows a bustling part of London. A bus can be seen passing in front of the National Gallery. This area was pedestrianised a few years ago. St. Martin-in-the-Fields can be seen on the right-hand side of the photograph.

In October 2020, the effects of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic can be seen with very few people venturing into the area. However, this affords a great view of the Square and the National Gallery beyond. Also, the spire of St. Martin-in-the-Fields can be seen above the trees.
