A Trip Through New York City, 1911

Old film of New York City in the year 1911. Print has survived in mint condition. Slowed down footage to a natural rate and added in sound for ambiance. This film was taken by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern on a trip to America. It’s so strange to watch this film and realized that every single person in it, is no longer alive, and strangers 100 years later are watching them from a devices they have never seen before, called “computers” and “smart phones”.
