Colour video from the century BEFORE last

– that’s right – a colourised video from 1896

I find it absolutely astounding that the technology exists to obtain this quality from an original 129 year old B&W film taken by the Lumiere brothers.

The snowball fight is amazing as are the vehicles

How many of the kids shown – died in WW1 (18 years AFTER this was filmed), how many died from the Spanish Flu epidemic ?

Nobody is making rude gestures/bunny ears or even waving - because nobody knew what was going on.....Can you imagine what would happen if someone recorded everyday life today - what people  would do ... ? "Oh yes they do"..........
