That is really stunning.

I have seen the original version,  but with the addition of color and artfully-imagined sound, it really brings the images to life.

Watching the street sweepers cleaning up after the horses, I did have to wonder: did Market Street have more poop on it then, or now?
"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. -Alexander Solzhenitsyn
