London Then and Now Video Puts Footage from 1927 and 2013 Side-by-Side

A couple of times last year, we had the chance to share with you amazing color video footage shot all the way back in the 1920s by filmmaker and cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene. His father had invented the bicolour technique of capturing color video, and using this technique Friese-Greene captured beautiful video of 1920′s Britain for his collection of films The Open Road.

The most famous of these films were shot in London, at the end of Friese-Greene’s two-year roadtrip around Britain; and now, 86 years later, we can compare his footage with the same shots taken in present day thanks to filmmaker Simon Smith.

Smith clearly took this project very seriously. His footage is a shot-for-shot remake of Friese-Greene’s London tour, meticulously re-created to match in every way so that you might admire both the similarities and differences unencumbered.

Which brings us to the crux of the matter. What’s more fascinating in your opinion: how much has changed? or how much seems to have stayed largely the same?
