Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Thought this might interest Late Victorian Era enthusiasts. There you have the clothing the businesses, the vehicles, lots of good data.

It was an amazing video, but it made me sad.

They are all dead now. What were their lives like? How did they live? Were they happy? I just wonder.

The last part of the film seems to be more wealthy people. The hats on some of the ladies are amazing. I also saw one lady who appeared to be wearing your typical hat from 1870s perhaps. She was an older woman, dressed in black. Still mourning perhaps.

A fascinating look.

That is pretty amazing! It makes the people seem a lot more real than those other jerky early films. Their movements are more natural.

Lots of little things to spot:

Dudes going out hooning in their car!

The beach promenade:
One legged man
Man promenading with lady and giving his umbrella a big twirl.

The last scene:
Little student boy wearing cape and mortar board.
