London 1927 - In Colour

This is just wonderful.

This footage was 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.

Music by Jonquil and Yann Tiersen.

Found on Vimeo - thanks to Tim Sparke for posting it.
