We had a go at this remarkable footage of a beach in 1920s Holland last year using Deoldify for the colorizing.
This is a newer attempt using deep exemplar-based colorization. This open source software requires carefully colored reference frames. It’s a slow process but still an improvement. It gives a much more accurate time travel movie.

The process involved cleaning noise artifacts such as flicker and dust. Then upscaling to 4K hdr at 60fps.
The final touch is the production of an immersive soundtrack.

This is the part I enjoy. There is something timeless about being on a beach. We hear the same wave sounds heard by our ancestors. When we are long gone, our descendants will listen to the same heartbeat of the ocean too.
These fragments of film of people now long gone, can be enjoyed with a little more sense of reality.
