A newly-released archive from the British Film Institute documents the changing face of London in the early 1920s through evocative sepia-tinged images. Familiar landmarks like Big Ben, Tower Bridge and St Paul's are all in there, and even the Olympic stadium from the 1908 Games.
The British Film Institute say the six image archives will allow people to 'check out the street markets on a Sunday and wander down crazy little alleys, past pot-bellied pubs, inns of court and the buildings that Dickens knew.'
The archive is available on DVD and can be purchased from the British Film Institute at http://bit.ly/N5kTQJ.
