A Day at the Beach in Biarritz, France: Watch Video Restored & Colorized with AI (1928)

The Youtube chan­nel Glam­our­Daze invites you to time trav­el back to a sun­ny beach in roar­ing 20s Biar­ritz France. And, to help you along, they’ve enhanced the orig­i­nal 1928 video with AI tech­nol­o­gy. Set­ting the stage, they write:

By the 1920’s, the coastal resort of Biar­ritz on the Côte Basque in France attract­ed the fash­ion­able and wealthy dur­ing the sum­mer and ear­ly autumn.  Those who could afford it, stayed at the Hôtel du Palais which was orig­i­nal­ly a sum­mer vil­la built for Empress Eugénie. Her vis­its turned Biar­ritz into a pop­u­lar sum­mer resort.

The film starts with clips from a hotel over­look­ing the beach, then a street fash­ion show. We then move down to the beach for a walk among the sun­bathers and swim­mers.
In just a few years over the 1920’s, wom­en’s swim­suits had evolved con­sid­er­ably when com­pared to those seen in our recent video “A Day at the Beach c. 1921″.

The roar­ing twen­ties saw seis­mic changes in cloth­ing, style and social atti­tudes.
