with 12 of these films (apparently there were 20+ altogether). Can't find it on youtube, but this should work instead.

This has been the film with the most street sequences so far - loads of buses and taxis where I've only picked out the best. But also a very strong impression how rare normal vehicles are in comparison, alongside still lots of horse carts. Very few people seem to own ordinary small/medium cars - most private cars were big wealthy stuff.
