This Side by Side Flying Train Tour Filmed in 1902 and 2015 is Making People Sad
In August, the MoMA uploaded an incredible video from 1902 of the “Flying Train” in Wuppertal, Germany.
The suspended railway is still in use today, moving some 25 million passengers annually as of 2008. It runs along a route of 13.3 kilometres (8.3 mi).
YouTuber pwduze recently uploaded a side by side comparison video that syncs the 1902 tour through Wupppertal with one taken in 2015. The changes to the cityscape are fascinating to see and many lament the charm and character lost in the 100+ years since the first tour was filmed.
