‘these days’ being 1896….here is a film taken by the Lumiere Brothers, enhanced for higher resolution and interpolated for a faster frame rate.
There is also a colorized version, which is very cool, although the actual colors could of course only be guessed.

Nice, I love those old restorations. Here is one from 1902: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQs5VxNPhzk
Those restorations are amazing! Here is one that had me mesmerized – was it posted here? But the lost film of George Stevens – his private 16mm camera – in immediate post war Germany. Wouldn’t surprise me if you introduced it to me, David. My memory ain’t what it used to me.
No, ’twas not I…never seen these before. Definitely worth watching.
Bill, do you know if there were colorized or were they originally shot in color?…I’m guessing it’s the former, 1940s colors were generally a little more washed-out.
…oh…it says right in the subtitle that it was indeed shot in color.
