About

Royal Wedding, King George VI with the Bride, Princess Elizabeth - Bert Hardy Signed on front, Stamped with photographer's copyright ink stamp on reverse Silver gelatin print, printed later 12 x 16 inches From the slums of London and Glasgow to the battlefields of World War II and the Korean War, the photographs of Bert Hardy (1913-1995) are amongst the great documents of the twentieth century. Hardy joined Picture Post magazine in 1941, becoming their chief photographer after just a few months. He later served as a military photographer and won countless awards. His image of two women sitting on the railings of Blackpool’s promenade has since become an iconic image of post-war Britain.
