1920’s London in Colour Gent on the street 21 May, 2013 1 Shot by British film pioneer Claude Friese-Greene, this authentic and colourful insight into 1920’s London is taken from his collection of short films, ‘The Open Road’, created in 1926. Restored by the British Film Institute, The Open Road is a travelogue of Friese-Greene’s journey, filming English country life before finally returning to the capital. Almost a century later, London landmarks remain as easily identifiable now as they were then. Music: Jonquil and Yann Tiersen. One Response Felix 1 June, 2013 Wonderful.
