You can actually see what it looks like today at Google Maps street view:
Manningham Lane, Bradford, United Kingdom

The video starts with the 3 girls near Thorncliffe Road and at the end you should still be able to see the buildings shown as they are the villas you can see before the traffic lights on the junction with Queens Road which is the road you see at the end of the film on the right.#65279;

This is my favorite thing I have seen on here! I could watch it over and over.
I love to see/read things about that period of time.
Thanks!

For 1902, the quality of this film is excellent.

I think those girls look quite charming in their Edwardian fashions.

Everyone in this clip is probably long dead, but they live forever because of the magic of films.

amazing clarity - wish I could have been there at that time just to see how things really were like

One of the great things about modern technology is that 100 years from now people will be able to accurately see and hear things as they were when recordings were made. We don't really know what Abraham Lincoln sounded like, for instance. Although we have written accounts of what life in New York City was like in 1850, we can only imagine what is was like based on those accounts. With movies and sound recordings, we can now know for a fact.
