Shaftesbury Avenue and Regent Street are instantly recognisable in Austrian photographer Ernst Haas’s images of late-1940s London. His top-hatted City gents, though, seem to hail from a different century entirely. Haas (1921-86), then a newbie photojournalist, made his mark with these shots of the city being reconstructed after WWII. In a series focusing on Speaker’s Corner, he also documents a multicultural society in formation.
