The Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern shot the original footage in 1911. Guy Jones adjusted the film speed to make it appear more natural, and added sound effects.

Very early cars and trucks, but still horse-drawn wagons.

Nice! I was watching this just a few weeks ago, Berlin circa 1914 colorized and slowed.

Fascinating. Better times, no nuke radiation and if an EMP hit you wouln't die from the nuke plant meltdown. It's not a matter of if but when a Carrington event goes down.

Interesting footage, I can't imagine what it would have been like to live back then.

My impression is that the recent past is pretty familiar. It's the 21st century that seems odd. I'm losing touch with popular culture; the music, the celebrities. Everybody in public has their nose in a cell phone.

The more connected everyone is the less personal it all becomes, and the music... I'm not into doing ecstasy just so I can stand it. I'd rather die than go to some nightclub, German Industrial fest (unless Rammstein were playing) or rave.

I think Meh's avatar is a celebrity, but I don't know who. When I go to town, I see adult men riding around on what looks like kid's bicycles. They wear sports team clothing, and talk in hip-hop English which I don't fully understand.

Lots of straw "boaters". I remember when men wore fedoras, but that came later. They say JFK ended the men's hat fashion.

I've been gone for about 12 years or so, so I've missed nothing. That doesn't go on here at all.

thumbsup.gif "Space" is a naive term for it.
