A contemporary spinoff of the iconic 1926's film 'The Open Road'.

One of the most memorable cityscape films of the mid-1920’s was captured through the lenses of Claude Friese-Greene. His film collection, titled The Open Road, not only documented the daily life of Londoners, but also conveyed the beauty of the iconic city in an unique way.

Following in the footsteps of Friese-Green, Simon Smith created something equally as impressive. His contemporary spinoff matches the original film’s timing and angle, arranging a near-perfect mirror image of the 1926 London setting. The six minute footage, when showed side-by-side with the original, offers more similarities than differences. While building sizes and car designs may be different, it is surprising to see what changed and what stayed just as it ever was.

If you’re into nostalgia, be sure to watch the video below.
