Men in bowlers! Women in full-length gowns and floral hats! The clothes won't be familiar, but there's a lot for riders of today's 4/5/6 train to recognize.

Taken approximately a year after the IRT opened, the film follows a subway as it makes its way from Union Square to Grand Central. 

Hat tip to the NY Daily News.
