1920s, England, history, London, travel, videos

Look, a Distraction!

What day is it? I’ve lost track. My internal calender is broken. On Saturday I thought it was Tuesday, and Monday I kept thinking it was Friday. Clearly sleep is in order.

I do have knitting to show you, but photos won’t get taken until this weekend. In the mean time, may I present early color footage of London, 1927. Someone shared this over on Facebook, and I could watch it over and over again:

  1. It was actually recorded in color. The guy who recorded it was a developer of an early color process, though it apparently did not catch on as well as some other color filming techniques. If you click on the original link, it explains that there was some digital enhancement done to correct some skipping that was the result of the process (and age).
