Pre Auto Street Film

This is similar to the 1901 NY Edison video posted on this blog last year. This one is a film made from a streetcar as it passes through the streets of Barcelona in 1908. Like the Edison film, there are a handful of cars, but this one has lots more bicyclists. It is really a sweet seven minute film:

One odd thing I saw was that it appears that some street trees are planted on the street side of the curb.
