A Trip Back in Time

Take a trip back to 1905 with early film footage of New York City’s subway system. In this film clip linked below, the New York subway was only a few months old! I particularly enjoyed seeing the children in the early and the last part of the video (the family holding the hands of two children.) Their names are lost to the mists of time, but wouldn’t it be interesting to know who they were and their life stories?

The men and women looked so dignified in their dress. No tattoos, no flesh hanging out, and I do mean hanging out (even though it was late May when the film was taken), no people eating, shuffling along while slurping from giant 32 oz. cups, no coffee clutchers and no iPhone zombies staring at their magic rectangles. What a different world it was.

Here’s the link from the UK’s Daily Mail.

    It is sometimes refreshing to visit the way things used to be. We recently stayed in a historic sea coastal town that was founded in the late 19th century. The downtown district’s buildings were the same. The old Victorian homes looked as if it was still 1900 and the old military fort still had all of the original fort buildings still intact, along with the old chapel and movie theater that the soldiers used. It was if the town hadn’t got their orders to speed things up. Needless to say, we left relaxed and blessed.

    Thanks for the post.

    With Him Always,
