1990 Kanda, Shinjuku, Machida, Etc.; 2014 Shinjuku, Osaki, Ginza, Etc.

Views of 1990 and 2014.  The 1990 views are basically a 1990 version of taking video here and there while going about the city for other reasons, so there are a lot of central Tokyo views.  The 2014 videos include views of Ueno Park, the large pedestrian overpass at Ueno Station, Ginza, etc.  (The photos this time, by the way, are fairly random - some related to nearby video links and some unrelated.)

1990 The Map あの時の使った地図 900919

A look at the map I started the Around Tokyo video project with - marking areas I'd videotaped by highlighting them in yellow.  I'm not sure what became of this map - it's probably sleeping in a box somewhere.

This was taken specifically for the audio track - which caught some of the whistling sound made by air going through the train when accelerating and decelerating - making the noise via a gap between a closed door and the door frame.

1990 西新宿の古い木造家 Old Wooden Houses in Nishi-Shinjuku 900918

I'm fairly certain that the old wooden houses shown in this 1990 view are now gone and they put up office towers in their stead.

1990 エスカレーター無しの新宿駅階段 People Climbing Stairs in Shinjuku Rush 900919

Before they installed escalators at (nearly) all the stations in Tokyo, the sight of a wide staircase full of people walking up from the platforms was kind of a remarkable sight - looking somewhat like a flowing river.

1990 町田駅-新宿駅 小田急ロマンスカー Machida to Shinjuku - Odakyu Romance-Car 900919

At the time, due to the scheduling of the reserved-seat express trains, I tended to go from Shinjuku to Machida via Romance Car train (but not the other way), and it was always the first generation of the train that I rode, so this view stands out for two reasons.  First, I was going in the other direction, from Machida to Shinjuku, and it was a newer type of Romance Car.

1990 新宿駅-町田駅 小田急ロマンスカー 学生など Shinjuku to Machida Via Romance-Car 900919

I stumbled into an unusual situation on September 19th, 1990 by arriving at the Romance Car platform just in time for the train, and then unwittingly boarding an extra section of the train that had been added specifically for a large group of traveling students.  Since the two parts of the train were separated by control cabs, it wasn't possible to (internally) go from one half to the other half, so I had to stay with the students all the way to Machida.  At the time, I regretted the mistake, but in retrospect, it was a lucky mistake, as it now provides a rare view of a group of 1990 high school students on a long-distance trip together.

Strange Recording in Subway - Anti-Bird Maybe 140912

Another video taken primarily for the audio.  There was a strange sound coming from a speaker in the entrance passageway of a subway station, so I took this to record it.  I imagine it's to stop... pigeons(?) from using the passageway?

歴史的なタイルとビル響く Polished Old Tiles and Cool Echoes in Old Building 140919

I didn't realize it at the time, but I heard soon after taking this view that this building is slated for demolition in the not too distant future.  I was prompted to take out my camera after looking down and being struck with how well maintained and clean the old type tile floor was (not small ceramic tiles, but the larger type, made of some mysterious material).  The tiles have been polished so often over decades (I think) that they have a sort of melted appearance in places where they have worn down.
