Take a Boston trolley ride back in 1903

Here's a blast from Boston's past.

The above clip is an interesting peek of what Boston was like in the early 1900s. The YouTube video is an excerpt from a 1903 Edison Biograph film that chronicles life in downtown Boston. A camera was mounted in front of an old-school trolley that takes a trip past Jordan Marsh then heads down Boylston Street into Copley Square.

The YouTube clip was posted by the Somerville Transportation Equity Partnership (STEP). Visit here to learn more about the non-profit group.

Nice to see that Boston pedestrians behaved the same way in 1903 as they do today.
