Rare footage of London Circa 1904

Via Sky News

An exerpt:

It's a film that's been hidden from view for more than a century and now I have been invited to see London life on the big screen - 1904-style.

The historian stumbled on the footage, 104 years after it was filmed, while doing a routine search in the Australian National Film Archive.

This is only a little bit of the 12 minute silent documentary called Living London, made by American film pioneer Charles Urban.

That's incredible. I'd love to see the whole 12 minutes.
