Somewhere along the way, we’ve shown you vintage footage of 1906 San Francisco (before and after the devastating earthquake), 1927 London1930s Havana, and New York City circa 1889-1906. Now, let’s do the time warp again and revisit the street life of Belle Époque Berlin. Bikes, cars, trolleys, trains — they all crammed the streets of a city moving headlong into modernity. And with a fair amount of chaos to show for it. But, even so, these were idyllic days. Shot between 1900 and 1914, the videos show us a more relaxed city, one unaware that World War I and decades of destruction were right around the corner.
