London in 1974 was anything but boring. David Bowie was making his mark on the world, a dashing Al Pacino was a star on the rise, while Jill Viner made history as the first woman bus driver in the capital
It wasn't all fun and games though, as shown by the Parliament bombing in
June and the Worsley Hotel fire that took seven lives in December that year. Here is London in 1974.
