Full image caption

Homeless protesters at Centre Point. In January 1974, homeless protesters occupied Centre Point to highlight the housing crisis in London. The 35-storey tower, built on Tottenham Court Road between 1963 and 1967, remained empty and unused for years after its construction. Intended as office space, for many, the building stood as a symbol of greed, since the owner kept it empty waiting for a profitable single tenant rather than letting it out floor by floor to commercial or residential users.
