The 1890’s early 1900’s the true pinnacle of America as a nation The 1890’s and early 1900’s - until the advent of WWI was a period of exceptional economic expansion, and innovation, perhaps unparalleled .today. The American empire of trade was at its zenith, and cities were growing rapidly. While the same decade saw an explosion of immigration to the United States from less economically prosperous lands, it was a period of vast wealth. The railroads, the dominance of the United States in South American markets and the Caribbean meant that industries were doing very well.
this is a video showing berlin, the german capital around the year 1900, although the last scenes are from 1914. ENJOY!
P.S I´m sick of repeating it time after time, so here is the following:
i just wanted to keep the title as short as possible, so i didn´t want to write ” Berlin and germany in the years of 1890-1920” . therfore, i chose the year 1900 to give the viewer a general idea of about what year the footage he is watching is from. So yes, some scenes are from munich, although the very most, 98% or so is indeed Berlin footage.
If you own some of that footage or and want credit for it or want it removed, please send me a message and I will delete it immidiatley! Thank you.
The field recordings of Muddy Waters made by Alan Lomax in 1941 and 42. In 1941 Lomax went in search of Robert Johnson, only to discover that Johnson had been murdered three years before. So Lomax recorded three tracks by Muddy Waters (McKinley Morganfield). Both he and Robert Johnson has both been taught by Son House, and Lomax also recorded six tracks by their mentor. Lomax returned the following year and recorded a further eight tracks by Muddy Waters and five by Son House. The sound on these recordings has been restored by Jean du Touche-Grande. Released on Zircon Bleu in 1999. The Son House tracks can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT1Qs1…
