And a whole bunch of cool old cars and trucks too!

Elizabeth NJ in the 1920's, you'll find it fascinating!

I saw three men that were hatless. They may have been Bolsheviks! Wink

But here's one of Manhattan in 1911 when 23rd street was the middle of town. Conduit streetcars, lots of horse manure (imagine the smell on a hot summer day) plus a walking-beam ferry at the end!

You KNOW the film quality's great when you can spot the horse doots on the street!

Absolutely fascinating film!
