Croydon, 1963: the reconstruction in action!
Terrific footage of postwar Croydon being built, from the BFI's archive. This 1963 amateur footage is full of gems, including the rise of the Nestle tower and the sinking of the underpass. There are strange voids and demolition sites as the Victorian grandeur makes way for the clean lines of the modernist world. A proper geeky treat.
