If you ever wondered what hipsters looked like in 1959, here's a brilliant short documentary showing some of Soho's infamous coffee bars in full swing. The 2i's, The Macabre, The Stockpot, Sam Widges and more. Especially interesting now as transport and property developers look to erase any suggestion of a soul from the area.
