    When video quality was better then current age, I didn't know that 1080P exists in 1911 . So many people not single screams except childerns. They have more culture then this age people.

    Hardly an automobile on the streets, and not a single one parked. Amazing to see the streets as they were intended to be. I see the Flatiron building, the Singer building, Madison Square, Brooklyn Bridge, and innumerable trolley tracks, most now buried beneath a layer of asphalt.

    I wonder why the tuxedo went out of style. It seemed even the poor were wearing one, I wish you can still wear a suit for no reason and people wont stare at you as if you’re some outcast or something

    So much happened during the 20th century. First world war haven't even started yet. The russian royal family Romanov have a couple of years left in life before the bolsheviks slaughtered them.
