The Kid Should See This

Incredible color footage of London in 1927

Watch this incredible color footage of London in 1927. Filmed by Claude Frisse-Greene, a British filmmaker who was the son of inventor and cinematography pioneer William Friese-Greene, it showcases the cars, buses, boats, parks, monuments, signage, rhythms, style, and the sea of hats that made the London streets during the 1920s.

Video updated. Songs: “Parasol” by Jonquil and “Comptine D’un Autre été L’après-midi” by Yann Tiersen.

More 1920s vids in the archives.
