Rose Tinted Nostalgia

I think we can safely say that these are now a documentary record of past places or practices.
What history would you understand if these were the only images left from the 1970s?

1 - 3 are the Thames at London, 4 the railway going up to the then disused colliery at Maesteg and 5 near Leeds

Do you see progress or just a difference?
So who will archive all the images taken today on mobile phones and P&S digital cameras?
Is there any point?
Who will search through them in fifty years time?

How many thousand negatives do you have?
What will happen to the history they contain?
