Perfectly restored with an added soundtrack, you can now experience the Paris of the 1890s as the filmmaking pioneers themselves did.
Open Culture recently posted about this footage from Auguste and Louis Lumiere, two of the first filmmakers who ever existed. You may know the two brothers for their film school classics Arrival of a Train and A Trip to the Moon.
This footage shows the Paris they knew.
Because it was motion corrected, and restored, it gives us a very clear glimpse into the famous locations at that time, over 100 years ago. The city of lights has served as an inspiration for creatives for a lot longer than that.
Check out the guide to the video on the Open Culture post.
