In 1902 in a German town there suspended ("flying") railway. This two-minute recording gives us an impression of what life was like back then, throughout the town, and outside of it.

It was shot on 68mm from that railway, providing impressive levels of detail.

@krinkle Great. 😀 Nice to see movie about my home city. If I where a child, I gone every day via Schwebebahn to school. Before few years, we got new type of wagons.

Greeting from Wuppertal.

@krinkle just throwing in because this film makes it seem like it’s 100% in the past- the wuppertal schwebeban is very much sill there!

@krinkle @pinkprius here’s one that shows similar footage side by side with what it looks like today: youtu.be/7TqqdOcX4dc
