Shanghai on film (1901)



This dreamy video is making rounds in Shanghai-loving circles. Western women in corsets and wide-legged trousers riding on bicycles are quite something!




The machine-colorized look is getting tiresome very quickly, though. And I wonder which way was the speed "corrected"? The edited version looks even more slowed-down than the source footage.
