London, 1940s

By Carolineld @carolineld
After spending last week looking at the Festival of Britain, I enjoyed watching these film clips which show London in the same period as it left the 1940s. The first is a tourist film, which covers the usual attractions but also mentions bomb sites near St Paul's and has transport and dress now long-gone.

The second shows daily life away from the tourist sights. It was filmed in St John's Wood in the late 1940s.
