In 1926 Claude Friese-Greene shot some of the first-ever colour film footage around London. 87 years later, in 2013, Simon Smith did the same and shot for shot, recreated Friese-Greene's film.

In the 1920s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene travelled across the London with his new colour film camera, capturing everyday life in the city with a technique innovated by his father, called Biocolour.

Claude, born Claude Harrison Greene was the son of colour film pioneer, William Friese-Greene.

After William's death in 1921, Claude Friese-Greene continued to develop the Biocolour system during the 1920s and renamed the process Friese-Greene Natural Colour. Claude was cinematographer on more than 60 films from 1923 to 1943.

Friese-Greene’s film captures London in striking detail, as if putting the whole city in a time capsule. The people pass before us like ghosts.

Biocolour produced the illusion of true colour by exposing each alternate frame of ordinary black-and-white film stock through a two different coloured filters. Each alternate frame of the monochrome print was then stained red or green. Although the projection of Biocolour prints did provide a tolerable illusion of true colour, it suffered from noticeable flickering and red-and-green fringing when the subject was in rapid motion. In an attempt to overcome the colour fringing problem, a faster-than-usual frame rate was used.

His trip produced some stunning images of the capital which were revived and restored by the British Film Institute on the South Bank. The British Film Institute used computer enhancement to reduce the flickering effect of the original Biocolour. Friese-Greene’s technique captures London in striking detail.

Simon Smith, a London filmmaker, retraced Friese-Greene’s steps and captured every one of his shots, standing in his footsteps, and using modern equivalents of his camera and lenses.

His personal study is surprising - revealing how little has really changed in London.

Sir Keir Starmer on Brexit and how Labour is back in business
Only 15 months ago, Sir Keir Starmer walked out of Jeremy Corbyn's front-bench team with a wounding jibe that the party was going nowhere "without a change of leader". Reminded of his prediction, the former lawyer changes his plea without hesitation. "I was wrong about that," he said.

London Bridge

London Bridge railway station is a central London railway terminus and London Underground complex in the London Borough of Southwark, occupying a large area on two levels immediately south-east of London Bridge.

The main line station, which is the oldest railway station in central London (current zone 1) and one of the oldest in the world, contains nine terminal platforms and six through platforms for services from the south and south east of London. Through services continue onto Charing Cross, Cannon Street or Blackfriars. In terms of passenger arrivals and departures it is the fourth busiest station within London as well as the UK as a whole, handling over 54 million people a year.

The London Underground station serves the Jubilee line and the Bank branch of the Northern line. The station is the sixth busiest on the Underground network and is the only station on the London Underground network with 'London' in its name.

The Northern Line station opened on 25 February 1900 as part of the City & South London Railway's (C&SLR's) revised route from Borough to Bank and Moorgate. The Jubilee Line station opened on 7 October 1999 as part of the Jubilee Line Extension, although trains had been running through non-stop from the previous month. To enable the Jubilee Line to be constructed, months of major engineering works to relocate buried services in the surrounding streets had to be undertaken. A new ticket hall was created in the arches under the main-line station, providing improved interchange. During excavations a variety of Roman remains were found, including pottery and fragments of mosaics; some of these are now on display in the station.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
