    London in 1927 & 2013 from Simon Smith on Vimeo.
    A combination of today’s ubiquitous digital cameras/mobile devices, an increasing availability of historical images and easy to use editing software (including online tools), means we have a great opportunity to bring past and present together in photographic/video formats. Above is a remarkable example of a Then and Now video. Although the original video is a BFI copy of the work of the 1920s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene - there are many other historic open videos that would be suitable to be used in this. (check video archives on the sources page)
