Cool Things, Rare Color Film Shows London Life in 1927 #Biocolour #NotColorized #PhotoCool #London1927


Normally we are all about modern. Modern lifestyle, model’s, DJ’s and concepts. However, there is the rare occasion we are struck by something vintage that is so cool it much be shared.

Picture this…literally. In 1927 Claude Friese-Greene shot some of the first-ever color film footage around London. He captured everyday life in London with a technique, innovated by his father, called Biocolour.

This is not ‘colorized’ or faked. It was presented by the British Film Council and is all, exactly what it looked like, back then.

Urban Peek notes British Film Institute used computer enhancement to reduce the flickering effect of the original Biocolour

This film is almost 100 year’s old. Enjoy this little feature;
