Bazarov : "In 90 years hundreds of people will be staring at you through a computer screen."

Marilyn Curtiss : Suits and ties and hats...even for a walk on the beach....

ZTM : Little did they know that one day they all will be on YouTube 😂😂

IHeartCryptoverse : Does anyone else look at the people and think the depression is a year away, the little boys will one day be fighting in WWII, and the elderly people were toddlers during the Civil War? But at least 1928 they were having a very nice day strolling along the boardwalk.

Schnitzengruben : Amazing, these kids look like little adults, they're wearing exactly the same outfits as the grownups.

Peace & Quiet : 1:26 the equivalent of dabbing in 2018 Times may change but kids stay the same

Xorxe Xorxito : My thoughts that this people couldn't imagine how rapidely things were going start developing. Tv, satellites, space travel, computers, mobile phones, AI, robotics. My grandmother 10 years old at this time turned 100 a month ago. Some people of this era are still alive. Thank you guy jones for these great old recordings/films for us to see who loves vintage.

Mrs.Rushy : Those boys at 1:15 look between 9-12 years of age. I wonder how many of them went on to fight in WWII just a little over a decade later. They would have been in their early to mid 20s when the U.S. entered the war.

tarangolian gmx : OMG- people were so elegant: all men - even children - with ties, all women with nice hats and beatiful coats...but what strikes most: THEY HAD ALL A NORMAL WEIGHT!

Remnant Soldier : A year later the Stock market crashes...

Branzinotito : We are a fallen society.

Marcela Torres : Love these vids! 1) the women’s coats were gorgeous! 2) nice to see people used to act a fool in front of the camera back in the day 3) look at how many people are walking!

Zachary Taylor : RIP America.

jacobrocks7 : Great job by Guy. My dad was born in 1928 and is is turning 90 soon. Kind of weird seeing all of those souls in the film with most now dead..enjoy life folks!

Perry Mathews : These people are long gone, it's like looking at ghosts. I sometimes wonder, who were they? How did their lives turn out? particularly the children. The young boys skylarking in front of the camera, did they go to war that was eventually to come their way, did they survive? Although these films are fascinating they are also sad. People who were like us but now gone, forgotten.

Ryuko Chan! : I used to say to my grandfather "I wish I was alive back then, it looked so lovely" he would say "we had Hitler and taking a dump in the outhouse wasn't too pleasant either" what a shame.

dukadar o'dear : Well dressed people. Fur on the ladies was big back them. They would be physically attacked now by SJWs. No obesity and yet no hunger. Almost everybody smiling. The kids excited but yet polite.

mokiigirl : The women walked arm and arm. I remember with great fondness the old women walking arm and arm after dinnertime in my neighborhood when I was a kid.

wcdino685 : To think all those young kids in this video probably ended up involved in WWII overseas.

NPC #2231905 : Where are all the minorities?

VJ : Anyone see nucky thompson

Shaandan : They dress beautifully. However, everyone dresses exactly the same... no personality shown. Would bore you after awhile when everyone wears the same thing as you

Felix Nemo : Not too many pot belly people on the video.

Nancy : What makes a person smile and react as they do when they see a camera towards them? Especially in 1928? Fascinating snapshot of life.. What are they thinking? I would like to visit them only if I can return back the same day here. Would anyone else?

David C : I love how most of the comments talk about this being a better more civilized time. No Walmart trashy people. And I agree. However it didn't have women's rights of blacks able to go into certain buildings. Other than that it was almost perfect. Just enough technology to give us an easier life, but not too much where we depended on it.

Lotta Krap : Looks like a long catwalk for a fashion show. Everyone is looking impeccable

Bravo Pakistan. : Past present future at my fingertips YouTube! I love you.

Hannah Elizabeth : I GO THERE!!! my heart oh my god

Robert NYCGUY Raised on Records : Love the architecture, the majority is gone. A pleasant time in Atlantic City. My folks first took us in the late 60's, haven't been there in 4 years. It seems so chaotic nowadays. Everyone here acting accordingly , dressed up in their best. The closest way for us to go back in time. Other than all my photo books devoted to OLDNY, OLD USA history. TY Guy.

Johnny Aingel : I love how clean and well dressed they all were

Johnny Aingel : Those kids are hilarious i LOVE it we used to do the same just acting silly in front of are dads camera boy i miss those days when we were young in the world and not a care in the world god bless you dad rest in peace and thank you for all the pictures and videos wonderful memories

Jose : I also notice alot of women walk in pairs.

Chuck Wagon : This clip gives you a good idea what travelling back in time would look like!

Roger Martin : That job sucks of pushing people on those rolling caravans in your nice attire !!

Warnerchild : 3:20 kinda shocked me - having "people" push you at the same speed as walking

Steve Heywood : How fascinating...thank you so much for posting this 👍👍😎

NEIL Michael B. : Another incredible trip in the YouTube time machine...gracias!

Brian Mcnamara : People dressed as if they were going to a job interview today but just appearing as normal. Wish there was an effort to make this type of veneer normal again. Maybe there would be a sense of purpose in people again.

SC98 : Look at all those couples holding hands!

FranksFlyTraps : Simply awesome, thank you. Horses on the beach, man how things change.

Claudinchenchen : The ladies preferred to wear fur. That was exactly the taste of my great-grandmother ;-)

wetracy : Probably Easter. It was April 8 that year, very early.

Johnny Aingel : I wonder if any of these people are still alive today i mean the young ones

Robert Smith : Even up to the 90's i recall seeing elderly women here in England of the generation born in the 1900s that still dressed in a similar way to their 20s/30s youth,with cloche type hats and wavy hair,smart dresses and coats,my Granny was one.Old men in smart suits and caps or hats too.Never see that style anymore.Love these films you put up here.

Turkeydoodlers L. : Fine work as always Guy

joey s : watching this film confirms the social engineering that has turned the public today into overweight slobs!

Jeff C : Hats, hats, everywhere hats.

Archived_Videos : Boardwalk Empire was very accurate in its portrayal.

byron silas : That's cause someone finally figured out how too put sound on movies in (1928) first time , period.....

Themanwhocameback2 : My father may have been one of the boys frisking about. He was born in Atlantic City in 1922. It's great to see(2:80, and at other points) the great old hotels. I see the massive concrete Moorish temple hotel called the Marlborough Blenheim, and right next to it the Hotel Dennis, modeled after Versailles, and next to it, The Shelburne. Now all gone, but they were fantastic.
