Incredible video combines 1924 and 2014 London


London: not all that different to what it was a century ago.

Horses have been replaced by rickshaws, every office building has a Pret A Manager stuck on it, and bus drivers refuse to accept money - but these issues aside, the history is still there.

Just take a look at the beguiling video below for evidence of that. Edited by Simon Smith, it meshes the grainy 1924 footage of Harry B. Parkingson and Frank Miller with shots in the same spots today, providing a haunting look at change within the respective cityscapes, or rather lack of it.

Squint just enough and you might even be able to see an olden day Pret.
