Panorama of London's Southbank displayed via HTML5 and canvas

Another experiment with captured film frames and stitching techniques to produce a panorama. This time it's a view of London's Southbank, shot in around 1955 for the opening sequence of the thriller 23 Steps to Baker Street. Great skyline of St. Paul's cathedral, Bankside power-station (now the Tate Modern), Waterloo Bridge, the Royal Festival Hall and Cleopatra's Needle.

This would have been a few years after the Festival of Britain, before the shot tower in the centre was demolished to make way for the Hayward gallery and other buildings of the Southbank centre. Note also 'Big Ben' swathed in scaffolding. This may possibly have been filmed from Shell Mex House.
