Digitized and colourized film of New York, 1911. Aye - 1911!

Mesmerising stuff considering how long ago this was and everyone in the film is dead! Even more interesting if you've been there. You can make out landmarks that are still as prevalent to this day - and to think I've stood, walked by, been in a lot of these buildings on my visits to NYC that were frequented by these finely dressed ladies and gentlemen of that era. Fascinating stuff.

They stare into the camera, having no idea people from a century later are staring back!

Enjoyed that, do like looking at old footage.

Everyone regardless of age all wearing the same attire more or less.

The family in the car must have been a tad well to do.

And the streets and pavements look clean.

Incredible stuff.Wonder how much the basic layout of NY has changed since those days,would be interesting to see a then and now comparison-there were some pretty tall buildings starting to appear even back then. Love to see similar footage of pre-war Plymouth,always fascinates me to try and imagine what things were like when walking around town.

Even earlier - Paris 1890  Shocked   Wonderful stuff. I think it's safe to say all of these people are deffo brown bread Laughing

No cars yet. I think the first car was by Carl Benz in that particular year, or maybe a year after! Incredible footage. Love the kamikaze delivery boy dodging the horses on what looks like the Champs-Élysées (2:28) - and the fire brigade at (3:30)  Laughing Also the worlds first travellator (5:10)!
