This makes me so excited. I was really really loving how they de-aged the footage in They Shall Not Grow Old, it literally breathed life into the footage, and if we can do this with all footage, I think I'm going to die of amazement and wonder.

St Paul's Cathedral, 1943

 

Astonishing to see the ruins at the bottom-left, just a short walk from my office, and knowing what the area looks like today.

Pictures from the Imperial Trans-Antarctic expedition of 1914. I've never seen a series of images so eerie and alien. It almost looks like they're exploring a different planet.

1999: House of Tomorrow (1967)
My favorite comment:

The makers of this film never imagined people would be watching this on a smart phone in 2019.

 

And how.

I got here from looking up another video on the past's predictions of the present and future. It's actually interesting to see they got several things right (though it's just as funny to see what they missed— not even the most beatnik of stoners is that '60s nowadays).

From the Alternate History forums

This is Tuareg chieftain (Amenokal), Moussa Ag Amastan arriving in Paris, 1913, and everything about him just screams AH/Scifi. It's as if characters from Frank Herbert's Dune walked straight into 20th Century France.

We got Tuareg in Libya. Their culture is all kinds of dope. Matrilineal nomadic stateless desert people that now sell their culture to tourists in order to survive, and have been fucked by the French and Islamists of independence in Mali, while facing growing pressures due to drought and economic hardships living in some of the world's poorest countries.

Reading the past like an open book: Researchers use text to measure 200 years of happiness
 
14 OCT 2019
 
Was there such a thing as 'the good old days' when people were happier? Are current Government policies more or less likely to increase their citizens' feelings of wellbeing?
 
Using innovative new methods researchers at the University of Warwick, University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School and The Alan Turing Institute in London have built a new index that uses data from books and newspaper to track levels of national happiness from 1820. Their research could help governments to make better decisions about policy priorities.
