Manhatta, 1921, re-visited

During my chemotherapy resting periods, I’m re-visiting City Symphonies.

Today it’s Manhatta made in 1921 by Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand. The captions are from the writing of Walt Whitman.

There’s an interesting article in The New York Times about Manhatta.

The film is short – barely 10 minutes – but if you don’t have time for the whole thing, catch the opening when the mass of commuters arrive on the ferry – awesome!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
