Amazing Colour Video of London, 1927

This video from London in 1927 is well worth a look, the problem I always find with black and white pictures and videos is that they never seem quite real.  Colour pictures and video has so much more life – it’s amazing  to see horse-drawn vehicles passing slowly over Tower Bridge, and how differently people dressed back  then.  It’s poignant to see people laying flowers at the Cenotaph, just 9 years after the end of the 1st World War.
