Retro Lifestyle Photos

One thing I've always struggled to come across is a good resource for old photos depicting life in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s. Does anyone have any tips of where to find good quality images from these eras?

I found some interesting pictures of 1950 in some magazines I
bought in an antique shop in London. They cost me a pound each and I
bought about 25 of them. I think it's one of the best purchases I’ve ever
made. I have found pictures of the Queen with her kids, of the streets
of the main English cities, fashion and furniture pics, you name it,
it was there to illustrate its historic period.

Now that you made me think about it, I should scan them really.
I think they’re valuable documents and should be digitalised.

I think the shop was in North Finchley, but I cant remember its name.
