Amateur Photographer magazine can reveal never-before-seen images of London, plucked from Getty Images? Hulton archive, ahead of their first public showing next month.
Images include Daleks ?invading? a London street in 1965 and people being rescued when the River Thames broke its banks in 1928.
The collection also includes scenes of everyday life, such as men enjoying jellied eels in the East End and a crowd of shoppers on Petticoat Lane.
The previously unpublished pictures (below) have been revealed ahead of the publication of a new book by Time Out Guides called ?London Through a Lens?.
They are due to go on show in a free exhibition of the same name at the Getty Images Gallery in London from 21 August-27 September.
?This exhibition is as exhilaratingly diverse as the capital itself,? said Getty Images gallery director Louise Garczewska.
?What unifies the images is the prevailing ?feel? of London – the buzz that is hard to put into words but would account for why 7.5 million Londoners call it the best city in the world.?
