Boston 1940s

I find these old, modernized films mesmerizing.

I agree. It’s like looking into a time-machine. The same holds true for really clear prints of films with location footage in cities that I know well enough to recognize landmarks.

You can also access archival images of your homes and neighborhoods online in databases maintained by libraries, historical societies and places like these. I found photos of my building in midtown NYC that way, including images taken in an apartment identical to my co-op, but on a different floor.
