A Day at the Beach 1928 - Biarritz France 1920s | AI Enhanced [60 fps 4k]

Time travel back to roaring 20s Biarritz in France on a September day in 1928.

By the 1920's, the coastal resort of Biarritz on the Côte Basque in France attracted the fashionable and wealthy during the summer and early autumn.
Those who could afford it, stayed at the Hôtel du Palais which was originally a summer villa built for Empress Eugénie. Her visits turned Biarritz into a popular summer resort.

The film starts with clips from a hotel overlooking the beach, then a street fashion show. We then move down to the beach for a walk among the sunbathers and swimmers.
In just a few years over the 1920's, women's swimsuits had evolved considerably when compared to those seen in our recent video "A Day at the Beach c.1921".
The roaring twenties saw seismic changes in clothing, style and social attitudes.

A Walk in the Park - c.1900 | Bois de Boulogne Paris - AI Enhanced [4k 60 fps]

Time travel back 120 years to Paris c.1900 for a Sunday stroll in the Bois de Boulogne.
It was a popular meeting place and promenade route for fashionable Parisians of all classes.

The film starts at the Porte Dauphine entrance to Bois de Boulogne. Look out for an early French automobile scooting past in the first few frames, possibly a De Dion Bouton.
Though horse drawn carriages were still the main transport, automobiles were quickly making their noisy presence felt by the start of the 20th century.

The exact date is unclear but the ladies walking skirts are still long and require hoisting, so this film was probably made before 1905.

The Bois de Boulogne ( Boulogne woodland) is a large public park ceded to the citizens of Paris by Emperor Napoleon III in 1852.
It was once an ancient oak forest.There are several lakes, botanical and floral gardens, a zoo and an amusement park. It was popular for equestrian events and open air theater in the 1900's. To the east of the Bois de Boulogne is the Parc de Bagatelle. To the north, the Jardin d'Acclimatation and to the South-east, the greenhouses of Le Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil.
