Color Film of London (1927)

Fascinating vintage color footage featuring scenes of London from the 1920s. This film was shot by Claude Friese-Greene, the inventor of the Friese-Greene Colour Process. Beginning in 1924, Claude began putting together a series of shots called The Open Road. Several locations are shown including Hyde Park, Westminster, London Bridge and the approach to Trafalgar Square.
