Hereís another good video on how the carfree life was over 100 years ago. Unlike the other videos I posted, this one really shows what it was like to live without motor traffic. There are NO cars at all and itís strange watching the tram travel without seeing any parked cars!
What really surprises me is watching all the children playing in the streets. Unless thereís a street fair where the blocks are corded off, youíll never see anything like this. I really feel children today will never know what it was to just play in the streets without the fear of getting struck by motor traffic.
Youíll see a small number of cyclist in the movie which was to be expected. However, if this was 1900, the price of a bicycle was almost as much as a motorcycle or more! Thereís even a man teaching his son to ride a bicycle right in front of the tram!
Itís refreshing to see the potential possibilities.
