Someone has done a digital restoration of a film taken from the Wuppertal Schwebebahn back in the horse and buggy era:

I usually don't care for film restorations that make antique films look like modern video, but I like this one. It gives a real immediacy to the experience.

That is wonderful. I especially like the version that has the 1902 film next to the same trip in 2015 ( My other half is currently playing Red Dead Redemption II, which is set in 1899 (a year earlier in Red Dead Online) and the film made me think of the streets of Saint Dennis, Red Dead's imitation of Saint Louis - nicely sealed or paved and no cars to see.
