Colour footage of Venice, 1912…

John Pollock sent this piece of film to How to be a Retronaut, via Matteo Farber. Over to John:

“This really is very Death in Venice. Slightly foreshadowed by the fact that war was about to break out. Timely in that last week the first official female gondolier was in the news…”

Thank you to John Pollock and Matteo Farber.
