Film restoration by BFI , London street scenes with horse drawn buses and motorised cabs

Dear readers, luckely,  I received this film publication, being a restored film  by RFI of a 1927 London street scene with cabs in it.

As it was send to me without a restriction, I take it we may show it on Weblog.

A comment by Bill Munro:- "Remarkable colour footing. I'd say it was taken on a Sunday because the traffic is so light and Petticoat Lane is open.  As far as the cabs, it's difficult to say what the ones we see from the rear are, but the one coming towards the camera on London Bridge is a Mk1 Beardmore and the one behind the policeman on point is a Unic",  (source by and thanks to Bill Munro)
