    Fascinating. Made me look-up when right hand steering wheels went out of vogue.

    The great thing about most of his videos is the speed correction. It makes so much of the old footage really come to life by making it happen at real speed. And then there's the sound.

    One of my fantasies is wanting to be able to travel back in time. These films give me a real taste of that (or as close as I'll ever get)!

    Any baseball fans?? Check out the outfield at the original Yankee Stadium!!!!!!!!! :eek:
