This video has been making the rounds so we thought it was worth sharing.
Incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Friese-Greene, who made a series of travelogues using the colour process his father William – a noted cinematographer – was experimenting with. It’s like a beautifully dusty old postcard you’d find in a junk store, but moving.
Music by Jonquil and Yann Tiersen.
Thank you for posting this Jonathan. Very much appreciated. Too bad he didn’t take his camera onto the underground. ::-)
