A walk back in time?

After date night on Wednesday, N and I stepped off the High Street curb after a short walk and discovered we had both been entertaining the same thought.  (Not quite as surprising once you learn our dinner conversation was about downtown buildings - past and present - and that's what inspired our shared thought.)

How cool would it be to be able to virtually walk around downtown Salem, as it was in the 1800's?  Complete with the sounds and smells of that time period.  Whenever we walk around those old buildings, we find ourselves spending more time looking up instead of where we're walking.

That *would* be cool.

I have NO idea how it could be done. My best guess is creating something that could be experienced with those big goggles with headphones that react to your turning head. We'd probably have to stroll on a treadmill at the same time.

Well, here's a note from 1893 that talks about the olfactory dimension - and it's talking about the area between liberty and high and ferry and court!
