We love… Robert Blomfield photography from Glastonbury, 1970

In the spirit of all things Glastonbury this weekend, and for those who can’t be there to battle intermittent showers and sunshine, we wanted to share these magical archive photographs from Robert Blomfield.

Blomfield’s photos beautifully capture the magical essence of this celebrated music festival back in its inaugural year of 1970; when it was a mere British Pound to enter and better known as The Pop, Folk and Blues festival at Worthy Farm.

No in its 42nd year, the festival is world famous and sets the stage for the finest contemporary music, theater, art and food, and is renowned for drawing-in eclectic crowds of stylish folk each year.

With phone apps and new technology giving everyone the chance to emulate the retro looks of vintage photography, these beauties are the real deal, and definitely have a timeless quality to them.  Thank you to Amy Leverton our Denim Editor for spotting these.
