It has been described as the “the largest protest event in human history” with estimates varying between 8 to 30 million participants.

In London the figures given on the day range from 650,000 to a million or more. However many people actually attended is almost irrelevant as it seems uncontested that it was (and possibly remains) the largest ever political demonstration in the city’s history.

I took these photos in London with a pocket film camera before I invested in a digital camera, the negatives are now long lost to time.
