    Thanks for posting this!  I viewed it through Jamie's repost on FB.  It's very good quality, particularly given its age.

    Looked to be a very interesting item, but it has been removed as it appears to be infringing some copyright, not sure how something in 1927 would still be copyrighted though!

    Great find! The video is deleted from the OP's link since United Music Publishing is not playing nicely and claiming copyright. You can find it elsewhere, such as here http://www.wimp.com/rarelondon/I am posting this only because I believe it constitutes fair use for educational purposes. FYI the film maker's bio is on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claude_Friese-Greene
