Speaking of AI upscaling, YouTuber glamourdaze shares this footage from around the year 1899, taken at the beaches of Étretat and Le Tréport in Normandy, France. The footage has been enhanced and upscaled to 4K.
“Possibly filmed by Georges Méliès, with its innovative wide panning shots, while on holiday with his family in 1899. Méliès started out making many actuality films, often in his favorite holiday spots like Le Treport. His classic Trip to the Moon was released in 1902.”
It’s always incredible to see old footage like this with a clearer view. It all suddenly feels not so distant.
