New York City Subway Ride-Along POV from 1905


Even back at the turn of the last century, people were popping cameras onto things and making point-of-view videos. This one from 1905 is of the New York City subway and as you can see not much has changed. The men still wear hats and suits all them time, oh and mustaches, and the women still were long skirt and bustles. Some things just never change.
