Munchmallows tea towel Dip in

London 2010: Introduction from stml on Vimeo.

Fans of Patrick Keiller's 1994 film London may be interested in James Bridle's London 2010 project, where he is painstakingly refilming each scene in present day London.

London takes place over the course of a year, you never see the characters and it's shot in static frames. So if you were going to refilm a film it's more manageable than most (still quite an undertaking though). I could watch it over and over again and often wondered where some of the locations are and if they still exist. Now I'm happy. Every shot is collected in a London 2010 Flickr set. To complete the project can anyone help to identify any of these unidentified locations?

A great improvement, I'd say.
