The year I discovered Sagmeister

Claude Friese-Greene

Colour footage of London in 1926 shot by Claude Friese-Greene.

Friese-Greene shot a travelogue called The Open Road which captured his 840 mile road trip around Britain. The BFI restored the footage (way back in 2006) – a short of the full film featured here. You can buy the full version from the BFI.

Seems  I am a little behind the curve with this – Kevin Spacey, Stephen Fry and the Guardian have all featured or mentioned this…thanks to Mary E Winstead on twitter for posting…
