Old and new London combined in remarkable new film

A video demonstrating how London has transformed over the last 90 years has been released.

Filmmaker Simon Smith blended archive footage from 1924 onto new shots of the same locations in London in 2014.

"In 1924, Harry B. Parkingson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as "Wonderful London". Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time," he said.

It is the latest video featuring the capital after student Lewis Symonds created a stunning timelapse film and footage showing a skyline view of east London surfaced.
