It was (nearly) a 100 years ago today

We’d like to share with you this incredible colour footage of London in the 1920s, by the British Film Association. The footage was shot by Claude Frisse-Greene, an early British film pioneer, who shot a series of travelogues (travel documentaries), implementing the colour process his father, William, experimented with. The result – a beautiful dusty moving postcard of London which is spectacular to watch. You can see more clips from yesteryear that the BFI have posted on their Youtube page. Enjoy.
