I found this bit of film on The Library of Congress web site and although I noticed several of the women in it seemed to be wearing identical outfits, (not to mention that very few city walkers were even remotely glancing at the camera which must have been HUGE and not a commonplace item on the street for it's time) I didn't realize that it was most likely a staged scene until closer to the end.
Risque behavior, 1901 style.
(50 some odd years before The Seven Year Itch, clearly these film makers way ahead of thier time: )
