Thanks to Brad the Transit Guy (@bradforte1
), for sharing the above video on Twitter, which portrays tranquil scenes of the 1960s Cleveland Rapid Transit at stops across the city: Airport! University Circle! Puritas!
The grainy, subterranean footage and languorous orchestral accompaniment gives it a sort of Clockwork Orange
Though the rapid fleet itself and the signage have been upgraded — to say nothing of passengers' fashion choices — several of the stations are more or less unchanged in the 21st century.
Shot-for-shot remake, anyone?
