Tokyo between 1913 and 1915 in moving pictures

G P Witteveen's picture

Here are scenes of people excited about their modern new lives 100+ years ago. If you could identify persons and streets and businesses, the movie would take on added weight and vividness. But even without knowing the individuals and context for pressing the record trigger on the camera, there is great value in seeing a few glimpses of life then by contrast to what followed in the next 5 generations leading to 2020.
