With today being Victoria Day, we thought it was as good an occasion as any to post this video.
Victoria Day, of course, is set aside to honour the birthday of Queen Victoria - whose reign was longer than any other British monarch and the longest of any female monarch in history.
Victoria was Queen for 63 years and seven months, from 1837 until she died in 1901, at the age of 81. Her reign was marked by tremendous industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change in the United Kingdom.
The video at the top shows much of that change, as it is rare look at London shot in colour about 25 years after Queen Victoria died.
The footage was captured by British cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene for a film called 'The Open Road', which showcased new colour filming techniques that he invented with his father.
As the entry of Vimeo says, "It's like a beautifully dusty old postcard you'd find in a junk store, but moving."
