I love the description, from the video page, of how it’s almost like watching old postcards, but in motion:
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.
Music by Jonquil and Yann Tiersen.
I also get a kick out of people starting at the filmmaker, like he’s from Mars:
And the hats! They’re ALL wearing hats (except a very few in front).
And the little girl with the hair, who’s either gone now, or 86 years old.
