    Imagine how much classier society would be if we all still dressed like this.

    From photos alone, it can be hard to imagine that people from centuries ago were people like us. That’s why I especially treasure photos of them smiling, and just seeing them move around makes it feel more real, rather than seperate beings. It’s a surreal thing, and it makes me happy to see this. I’m glad future generations will have no trouble seeing exactly what the past was like.

    In that first shot it seems like everyones first time seeing a camera. They are so curious.

    The ladies in strict mourning are fascinating- you read about it but seeing them move is something else.

    Looks like some of them forgot to wear their mask.

    I dislike videos that are artificially increased to higher resolution and frame rate than they were filmed.

    It makes them look fake and digital, to me at least.
