Germany, 1902

This is quite interesting: large format film made in 1902 on a train passing over Wuppertal, which sits between Dortmund and Köln.

The embedded film has been stabilized and colorized; you can read more about it and see the original footage here:

I’m reminded of a scene from some cheesy high school TV show where the teacher tells the kids how much they don’t know about Benjamin Franklin. How did he walk? What did he sound like? Thus they’re encouraged to create a class film so future generations would know about them.
