What was Seoul like at the turn of the century?

Part of the following video is supposedly film footage made by Burton Holmes, who was an American explorer and writer who visited Korea in 1901 (and 1912). I found it quite interesting.

The funeral of the former Korean ruler, Sunjong, in 1926

Also, here is an interesting video from 1931
