In Pictures: London In 1969

We've rounded up a few of our favourite photos of London from 1969, featuring a new uniform for the City of London Police, nearly-naked revellers in Trafalgar Square and The Beatles' final concert on the rooftop of their record label, Apple Corps. Looks like they were onto the rooftop trend long before the rest of us...
