London Shop Fronts

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Now celebrates its first anniversary, a lovely collection of photographs by Emily Webber. Just goes to show, that personal obsessions and observations can lead into a surprisingly beautiful collection/project.

Colour film of 1927 London

Fascinating footage, even better after a weekend of wandering those very streets. Over 80 years later and some of the ambiance is unchanged. Magical!

Watch it through to the end and be rewarded with a coy appearance from Claude Friese-Greene the inventor of the Friese-Greene Colour Process. This entire piece of footage is a personal project of his to bring "the Colour of the Mother Country to the screen".

Oh and there's an adorable teddy-like pup at the very end for those who persevere.
