Originally premiered on Regent Street in 1954, London’s Christmas lights are a much loved fixture of shoppers, photographers – and bloggers! Oxford Street caught up in 1959, before a hiatus during the 1970’s owing to austerity and power cuts. Today, the lights are LED units, consuming two-thirds the energy of electric bulbs. Here are a few photographs of the highlights in the West End – available for viewing until around 6 January.
