    Here is a link to a movie showing what life was like in Paris before motorcycles were invented and apparently before the invention of traffic cops. Sorry about the incorrect title but I can's seem to fix it. The title should have been 1890's Paris:

    Ah, the fragrance of a warm day and woolen clothing and no bathing. Plus the aroma of steaming hot horse droppings.
    The good old days!

    It seems like too much of a good thing always ends up with lots of pollution that is hard to deal with: https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryU...risis-of-1894/

    Here is an article regarding the history of moving sidewalks like the one that was shown in the 1890's Paris movie: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/histo...sons-17484942/

    WE have an extreme amount of horses asses in DC..... Hence, road apples it is.


    My hometown in Ohio was the very last bastion of horse drawn milk carts. It lasted into the mid-sixties more as a tradition then anything else. I would wait for the school bus and watch the horse cart stop at points along the route. The horse knew when to stop without the driver directing it. And yes, there was shit on the road.

    The film cleaned up well!

    Did they have colour in those days? I thought anything before 1910 people were only able to see in monochrome. Modern technology what would we do without it!

    No color and no sound back then. According to my son-in-law who is up on these sort of things, they likely used an AI program to spruce up the movie, add color and sound. Did a great job of it, too.

    A couple of things I took out of this. Everyone wore hats, including the ladies. The sound track is in stereo.

    This could be an urban myth but Australian milliners, Akubra were responsible for the making of Indian Jones' hat for the movies. Akubra marketed a limit edition replica fedora. I was lucky to receive one as a birthday present from my dear wife. I've long lost the label out of the hat, but it was labeled 'the Indy'.

    I know a hat maker near Portland who is in contact with Hollywood types and is very knowledgeable on Indy hats. Indy hat history. He is making another lid for me (Pen Cap) and will see him soon. I will ask about who made the Movie hats and get back to you. http://www.penmanhats.com

    By the way... The maker of the Indy hat may be found in the Adventurebilt brand found in Penman's site.

    I have one of those, too. I still wear it when I go walking around in the sun and it is not too windy as it will blow off of my head when the winds pick up.

    My hat is an official "Indiana Jones Herowear Collection" hat with a 2006 Lucasfilm Ltd trademark. 100% wool - made in China. (I wonder what kind of wool? )

    Mine's made in Australia by Akubra. Made out of rabbit pelts. Akubra may still have the contract for the Australian Army slouch hat but you never know, they could be made in China now.
