London is a city that just oozes history. Walking down most streets there’s that sense that you could suddenly have been transported back in time for moment before a modern double-decker bus zooms by or you turn a corner and find a long row of Boris Bikes. But just what did London look like a 100 years ago? Well, you’ll have to settle with 90 years, because that’s what you can discover in this clever video Wonderful London 1924 & 2014 by Simon Smith. Watch closely as documentary footage from the 1920s is blended into the same London scenes today. Absolutely fascinating!
