This gem gives us an idea of how to paint all manner of models: figure clothes; vehicles; soot and smut; signs, of the mid-1920s. Even though it is in London, the dress and decor was similar all over the world.

This rare footage of London, England in 1927 is in full color. Such technology was almost unheard of at the time. The video was made by Claude Friese-Green, a popular filmmaker in the early 20th century who was best known for his series "On The Road".
