A Train Ride Through Barcelona, 1908

This morning on Dark Roasted Blend I came across this beautiful piece of early cinematography - a train ride through Barcelona in 1908. It is a stunning visual flash back to the past, and I love all the men tipping their hats, what a different world we live in today...!

Wow, that's just mesmerising! I've watched it twice now (the high quality version is fabulous) and I'm still picking out little bits 'n pieces going on along the sidelines. I love the little boy who flips up his coat-tails and wiggles his bum at just after the 5 minute mark :) I think I'll have to link to this in my blog too, it's too fabulous not to share even though oddly enough I posted another old film clip today. Thanks so much for sharing it!
