Immaculately restored film of life in New York city in 1911

This amazing film of New York city was recently found. The print has survived in mint condition. It was slowed down to a natural rate and sound effects were added for ambiance. This film was taken by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern back in 1911.


I finally got to meet the prolific Justine Peres Smith last week and took a few pictures. It was a quite pleasant meet-up and we had great discussions on many interesting subjects. You should check her out on Instagram and Twitter.
