London in 1927 & 2013

In 1927 Claude Friese-Greene, one of the British pioneers of film, traveled around England with his new color film camera and in the end of his trip captured some stunning shots of London‘s everyday life. Starting February 2013  filmmaker Simon Smith took a challenge of recreating same exact images taken 86 years ago. Fun personal study resulted into interesting conclusion – with all modern additions and time passing London hasn’t changed that much after all. Enjoy the fascinating video comparison.
