This ten-minute clip from a Swedish filmmaking crew looks sensational, and sounds great thanks to Ben Model:

Truly wonderful, as presented here.

AND -

Footage of this quality would be also amazing in another way, if carefully colorized and foleyed (both, based on historical research.)

A true window on the past.

Fascinating, well-made little film with great accompaniment. So much personality in the faces. How to expertly drive through a swarm of horses, cars, and pedestrians. Calox Tooth Powder, which my dad still used in the 1950s. Thanks for the link.
