1937 Copenhagen Travelogue

This is a 1937 travelogue about Copenhagen. It's very early color film, remarkable footage. At about 6:15 the urban cycling gets excellent.

The movie is a snapshot of its time (as movies are), and reflects the race (in)sensitivity of 1937.



Imagine that ratio of bikes-to-cars in Pittsburgh today. Of course, there'd be no living 40 miles from your job, either.
