|New York City in 1911 - via youtube|
Old film of New York City in the year 1911. Print has survived in mint condition. Slowed down footage to a natural rate and added in sound for ambiance. This film was taken by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern on a trip to America.It shows the mixed street ecosystem before cars took over. Lots of horses, carts, and carriages still in 1911. It is a wondrous thing, really. Check it out.

This is a project worth watching, at least in one's peripheral vision. It will be interesting to see how it turns out and what lessons there might be for Salem. It looks to be significantly more interesting than how our Boise project is turning out.
(Coincidentally, EWEB was founded in 1911!)

Salem City Council will be taking up a position on these goals it looks like, and these results should give the City momentum to take a strong position.
