Do I want to know what other body parts people used to applaud with in 1912?

Back in 1912 they used to applaud by crashing ships into icebergs.

That's back when men were manly and clanged as they walked, thank you very much...

Jokes aside, probably whistling, shouting and stomping, maybe some kind of noise-makers.

I liked the D.W. Griffith method. It's a bit hard to see. It's a construction shovel of some sort. The next part took the entire lady out.

Gross that even then people had to be told not to spit on the floor.

I'm guessing it was from chewing tobacco.

Yes, that's probably right. And less unpleasant than what I had in mind.

Oddly enough, looking back through old weather photographs I've had the great fortune of running across well documented fakes...  Apparently pretty decent photo editing existed way back when.

A good example I've seen (see below) involved taking an existing photograph, placing a glass plate over it and drawing a tornado over it before taking another photo.  1890s Photoshop at work.

As for the film quality, for 1912 photos and film were pretty good depending on the medium used, and with correct preservation the materials would probably look pretty damn good today.

Looks correct to me, but I'm left-handed.

They're preserving and restoring all the aerial photography used during WW1. I believe it's on glass plates. Could that be right?

I heard about it recently but I can't remember where.

Apparently, some women don't feel comfortable sitting on a toilet, so they hover over the toilet. And when they do, they might not actually hover over the bowl of the toilet. Or, depending on how forcefully they expel the feces, and the consistency of the fecal matter, it might have a shotgun result on the bowl and the floor.

More like metoo. It's referring to men harassing and groping women in the theater.
