Only in England: vintage photos by Tony Ray-Jones

These black and white photos capture the true English spirit. Half of them leave us scratching our heads in confusion, but that’s the beauty of it all. The series is called Only in England after all. Thanks to the British documentary photographer Tony Ray-Jones we can get a insiders view of the quirky, strange, seedy, humorous, every-day life seen over the years in English culture.
