Exploring the Delicious Slices of London: A Look at Cafes from the 1980s

Ivy Café, Lewisham, 1990
1

In Peter Marshall’s second collection of photographs capturing the cafes of London between 1980 and 1990, we are transported back to a time before chain coffee shops dominated the high street. Mo’s, Maggie’s, Ivy’s, Pegy’s and more, these cafes offered a glimpse into a simpler era, prior to the plethora of styles and flavors available today.

Stepping back in time, this collection takes us to a London where almond milk was yet to be discovered and syrup was a fashion accessory. A time when the most important question to ask was, “how do you take your coffee – with or without?” This series offers a nostalgic look at a unique slice of London life.
