These Victorian photographs are of Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes on the North Yorkshire coast. The former is very well-known to us, the latter we've only visited once. In the picture first showing at 42 seconds in, the building just to our left of the white octagonal tower is our local boozer when holidaying up there.  drunken

Brilliant! A few decades back you could have watched the very earliest moving pictures and thought, well, that baby in the pram might still be alive and very old. Now you know that everyone in this footage is long gone. A sobering thought.

I`ve often noticed that kind of feeling as well. Glad to know that someone else is aware of that sort of thing. I also try to imagine the video in color, a way of seeing through the eyes of how the people back then visualized the world. To them it was all very vivid and full of light and color, just as our world is to us in the present day.

I know with modern technology today the footage can be colourised. I have seen it done with WW1 footage, maybe earlier? It is a fascinating way to look at it, as I myself do the same, and even better they would of never thought at the time that a some 130+ years later the world would be watching their movements/daily business in the streets online.

Unless I've got it horribly wrong, this footage from the early 1900s was shot in colour. (It's best watched with the sound turned off!)
