Date Posted: 12/03/2014

Tower Bridge will be the home of a new photographic exhibition focusing on the people, places, events and designs that epitomise the decade of The Sixties. Schools visiting the venue will be able to see the exhibition between 28th March and 31st December.

The Sixties features over 60 iconic images: from pop stars to Prime Ministers, fashion designers to Formula One racing drivers and cutting edge architecture to political activists.

The exhibition will feature 26 large-scale panels on display in Tower Bridge’s West Walkway with images including Twiggy, Mary Quant, Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Additional highlights include a rare photograph of comedy duo Peter Cook and Dudley Moore taken by producer and director Bryan Forbes as a publicity shot for his film The Wrong Box (1966).

David Wight, visitor development and services director from the City of London Corporation, commented: “This enjoyable and entertaining new photographic exhibition offers a wonderful insight into this exciting decade.”
