Thanks to a heads-up from Twitter’s Caroline Boulton, we saw this amazing color footage of London in the 1920s.

This film was shot in the 1920s by early British filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene, using a color process developed by his father, pioneer cinematographer William Friese-Greene. Use the link below to the Vimeo clip for links to more background information on this clip and other footage from BFI.
