22. I know! This is fascinating!

We were taught to look both ways, while these people walk right in front of or around streetcars with no hesitation. Everyone is walking or riding in the street at the same time!

My grandmother was born in 1900 so she must have encountered scenes like this. She definitely remembered the advent of cars. There must have been accidents, but they make it look easy. I love footage like this since life has obviously changed so much, but it really wasn't that long ago...
