A bit of zen

This is a wonderful little film that shows what streets looked like back when people walked and rode bikes (lots and lots of bikes!) more than they drove cars and trucks. According to the YouTube description, it's a hundred years old:
Barcelona, a tram ride. A work from 1908 that shows the city and its main streets under the direction of Ricardo BaƱos

Well, that answered a question I had: Whether or not people were just as stupid "in the old days" as they apparently (thanks to AFV and YouTube) are now. The answer seems to be "yes". I never saw so many people crossing directly in front of a moving streetcar.
