Footage From Victorian England Enhanced to 4K and 60 fps

If, like me, you have a love for history, being able to see footage from Victorian England in 1901 is a real pleasure. Using neural networks, we can now see previously grainy and fuzzy video from the era upscaled to 4k, 60 fps, colorized, and significantly improved image quality.

Neural.love is a company that upscale videos using machine learning and neural networks. In simple terms, they take an old, poor quality video, and modernize it. We have featured some of their work before with a video of a train arriving at La Ciotat Station, France in 1896, as well as footage from New York in 1911. Honestly, I can’t get enough of their work.

To see videos that looked to be all but lost to the caverns of time, resurrected and presented to us in a far more watchable format is fascinating. This video is a compilation of clips from 1900 and 1901 by Mitchell and Kenyon of laborers and passersby in the north of England. England’s north has had a strong industrial core for some time and to see the level of detail was going missing is staggering. Many of the people passing the camera were equally drawn to it as I am to the footage, with cameras — particularly one that could record early video — being a rare sight. It’s difficult to watch the video knowing that everybody, from children to adults, will have passed away even if at a ripe old age; something that can only recently be the case with video.

If you find it interesting, Shiryaev’s channel has more to watch including videos we haven’t covered.
