Beautiful then. beautiful now.

EPC, you will be fine going back to that time. Every era has its positives and negatives. You must bank on the positives anywhere you are :)

Great video.

Almost looks like a cartoon...

...with all the foot and vehicle traffic moving in random directions!

Most remarkable thing to me was that I didn't see any women in the whole thing! I guess back then either women would have been at home or inside one of the carriages.I think I'd feel like I was on another planet if I was transported back in time and saw thousands of men out and about without a woman to be found!

EDIT: Watched it again and there are some women! Not many though!

It is an amazing century-old video....the similarity between this video and the streets of Tehran is that both have fearless jay-walkers and jay-runners.

Thanks for this eye-opening video!
