Wonderful London 1924 & 2014 | Simon Smith

Splicing footage from almost 100 years apart. “Wonderful London 1924 & 2014” by Simon Smith

Simon says, “In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as “Wonderful London”. Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time.”

The music used is Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler
