American Photographs From The 1800s On Video

A collection that dates from the early 1840s, to the turn of the century. The video runs for 6 minutes and has interesting black and white photos from the period covering aspects of everyday life, as well as featuring some historical figures. (Only one photo has been colourised)

  1. I am fortunate to have received many photos from the late 1800’s from my grandparents, through my mother, through my brother who put them on a DVD. I printed them out just in case the technology of DVD becomes extinct(as it already seems to have done.) Anyway they are a real treasure and I share them occasionally on my blog.

  2. Swimwear and tennis attire had not quite achieved modern standards. I also noticed that the locomotives looked a wee bit outdated compared to today’s bullet trains. It takes a very keen eye, but I was able to determine that these photos were not taken in the 21st Century.

  3. There is a sense in that while photographs were not that old, they already had an idea of how to pose for them. But I suppose that was partially due to the fact that one has to be still for a relatively long time to be photographed. Warmest regards
