Footage of Edwardian London

by Derry Nairn

While reading Time Out magazine's 'The Big Smoke' London blog, I came across this rather remarkable clip of Edwardian London. According to the author, Alex Barlow, the clip was:-
Filmed in 1904... [and] intended as a travelouge to give Australians an idea of what London was like at the turn of the century.

The footage is courtesy of the British Film Institute's Mediatheque
