Thanks to COPS, reality television, and videos like this, we've all gotten pretty used to seeing movies taken by dashboard cameras.
But this one's pretty special - it was shot in Brooklyn, New York by the Fire Department, all the way back in 1926.
The movie was shot by a camera attached to the hood of a vehicle carrying Fire Chief John Kenlon from the Brooklyn Fire Department to a storage warehouse fire on East 123rd Street on April 24, 1926.
Kenlon became the chief of New York's Fire Department in 1911, and later earned the title of 'World's Most Famous Firefighter' (and he's still getting YouTube hits today, apparently).
The video was shot on a snowy day for April, and the streets were really crowded. So naturally, the firefighters just moved their vehicle up onto the sidewalk and kept driving.
The Prelinger Archives released the footage, which offers a fascinating look at the crowded streets of New York almost 90 years ago.
It's only one part of a longer film that shows the entire process of fighting the warehouse fire. In the end, they put the blaze out. No word on whether they got in trouble for driving on the sidewalk.
If you'd like to see some street footage from a moving vehicle that's even older (not technically a dash cam, but close), check out this film from a tram in 1906 San Francisco. Call it tram-cam.
