London in Colour, 1927 Film

Standard

Lovely!  I kept wondering, where was this pretty girl in WWII?  What was this woman in the hat thinking while crossing the street?  Funny how adding color brings in reality.   Click here or below.

From the archives of the British Film Institute:

Incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Frisse-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.

The resolution is good enough for full-screen enjoyment.
