New Video Beautifully Blends Old And New London

You know how the word ‘awesome’ is over-used these days? Not here.

Simon Smith, who last year produced a staggering side-by-side comparison of London in 1927 and 2013, is back. His latest video uses a similar conceit, but his technique has moved on to superimpose archive footage from 1924 almost seamlessly over modern captures. The results are truly awesome. Enjoy.
