1920s New York Fire Department dashcam
If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to expostulate to a glow by a streets of New York City in a 1920s, consternation no more. This video shows what it was like—and it’s one of a beginning dashcam videos anywhere.
With a camera on a nose of a FDNY Chief Kenlon’s automobile (jump to a 2:00 notation symbol for a action), a float shows chaotic traffic, pedestrians everywhere, and some rather artistic interpretation of what, exactly, creates for an judicious path—gems like “Bad trade jams force use of sidewalks.”
Along a way, you’ll see some educational snippets on all of a record of a day that had to come together to coordinate a glow response in New York City, as good as a ground-level perspective of what cars, traffic, and city life was like as it flickered past a windows of a speeding car.
