Some old footage of UK roads - Manchester street scene (1901), Jamaica Street, Glasgow (1901), Ride on the tramcar through Belfast (1901).

The pedestrians seems to stay mainly on the pavements in these clips, but I couldn't help noticing their cavalier attitude towards crossing the road in front of traffic. Occasionally you see a pedestrian rushing to cross, but a lot of the time the pedestrians walk in the road with barely a glance towards oncoming traffic.
