London on Film with the BFI: Wonderful London (1924), Film Screening (BFI, Certificate E)
From Hackney to Chelsea in the company of the great 1920s British travelogue beautifully restored by the BFI National Archive. Wonderful London captured some of the most evocative images of the capital in the mid-1920s. These simple films contrasted different aspects of city life - East End and West End, poor and rich, natives and immigrants - often looking beyond the stereotypes to show surprising views of the city and its people.
