Just wait until it displays the full resolution
to see these people from 120 years ago, their emotions, the looks on their faces, etcc, and to see them interacting with each other is absolutly incredible
as one of the commentors has said, swap it to 0.5 speed, to slowly look at them and it is literally like being in a time machine through a glass window watching these people
stunning absolutly stunning

When I see films like this, I wonder if anyone in the film is one of my ancestors?

Is that from 1901? With sound?

And color?
The notes on the youtube page address this.

England in 1901. Nope, not one is an ancestor of mine.

The "crowd" sound is rather generic and may well have been added by the modern editor.
To me, the costumes are about right- especially the little girls in "pinafore" dresses, like the illustrations in Edith Nesbit's chidren's books.
Nor do we see any anachronistic motor vehicles.

P.S. I've got a feeling that I've seen part of that clip - one camera-gazing boy, anyway- in a television documentary about Edwardian England.

Its amazing to me how back in those days you could instanly know someones social class by their hat type.
To look at it now-It almost seems like it was the law to wear a hat,and of the correct type for your class!

Also the way the kids act in front of the camera,like they want to be filmed,but are also a tad nervous about the camera as its something new to them-you can still get that kind of reaction in certain far flung remote places today.Some kids I filmed in a remote village in Nepal were like that,and were amazed when they saw the footage on my DSLR screen-They couldn't believe their faces were not wavy because they had only ever seen their own reflections in a lake,and figured they looked wavy in real life!

Wouldn't it be cool to be able to take some of todays technology back to 1901 and show the folks there what our life is like today?
Imagine rolling up in a nice audi and showing them an iphone or laptop-their minds would be blown I bet.

Crazy how we are still similar, in one way. The children seem curious and fascinated by the camera, it appears, but a lot of the adults look suspicious. (regarding something new, they may never seen before)

Very cool to see film from that era, thanks for sharing.

Those hat-wearing conventions didn't really start to disappear until around 1960.
The intro on this clip is from a 60's television comedy;

I love watching this! Stunning indeed!

But the first video was invented around 1910-1918.. how can it be from 1901??

You know that person must have meant 'film' but the question still remains..is it real? Boys wearing adult sized men's shoes, threadbare knees, the ill fitting filthy suit jackets? Hats essential as defined ones class (keep the peace). The world was a different place and we are so much better off now.

its so strange, they seem fascinated by the camera, like its a celebrity or something or a king, watching them, or an amazing rare animal in a zoo that they're looking at

NOPE, just a load of lunatics from the future trying to imagine what the world was like back then

Imagine looking into a camera now, and trying to image what the world is like behind the person watching you
