Trafalgar Square, London

In May 1927, traffic was able to drive past the front of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. The number 29 bus is headed towards Palmers Green and the bus in front’s destination is Waltham Cross. The Waltham Cross bus is advertising a P. G. Wodehouse play called ‘Good Morning Bill’, which was on at the Duke of York’s Theatre. This area was pedestrianised many years later.

I took this photograph of a deserted Trafalgar Square in late May 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic. The pedestrianised area in front of the National Gallery looks calm with no street performers and tourists.
