The Proletariat's Progress

While on a walk at lunchtime yesterday I stumbled across an interesting feature set into the side of a building - a vertical manhole of sorts. The feature reminded me of nothing so much as Charlie Chaplin's magnificent Modern Times, so I desaturated my original iPhone image, added an old-timey title and slapped fake film threads atop it. I think it's pretty convincing, though I didn't age the faux film at all, which might have helped its verisimilitude. Then again, perhaps The Proletariat's Progress has been recently restored for Blu-Ray...
