Vintage Film Showing an Open Air Market in New York City Circa 1903

Check out this incredible vintage film restoration from about 1903, showing a black and white street scenes from an open-air market in lower Manhattan.

A look into a busy lower class market in New York, 1903. The other version of this is played at a very fast/comical rate, so I gave it a natural speed and some sound ambience to give it the feeling of peeking through a time machine or apartment window on that day.

The audio was added into the video for ambiance and uploaded recently by YouTuber Guy Jones, making it a lot easier to imagine yourself back in 1903.
