Rare colour film of London in 1927

This is absolutely fascinating. Somehow black and white film doesn’t seem quite ‘real’ but when you see images from the past in colour, it’s like a little piece of time travel. In 1927 Claude Friese-Greene shot some of the first-ever color film footage around London. He captured everyday life in the city with a technique innovated by his father, called Biocolour.

Quite beautiful…
