Prior to YouTube . . . .

Ok, so ironically it is on YouTube.  But this is an amazing video - filmed by Thomas Edison, while riding a train across the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Mnahattan - in 1899!!

The Brooklyn Bridge is itself an engineering marvel, as beautifully explained in David McCullough's wonderful book "The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge."
