The Dish recently posted a color film of London from 1927. Update from a reader:
The video was more captivating than I thought it would be. I was surprised at how stylish the people seem, and how thin! Hardly any fat folks to be seen! Of course, many people were smoking, which might help stay thin. And the kids looked so healthy. They keep telling us we have an obesity problem in this country, but you don’t quite realize the extent until you look back.
Another points to an Atlanta version of 1939.
