A Tourist’s View of New York City in 1939 — In Color

June 3, 2013

In 1939, a French tourist filmed some of the streetscape of New York City. Filming by a tourist at that time was not unheard of, but not that common. Far more remarkable, however, is that the film was in color.

This is an amazing “taste” of another time, in a particular place.

How many other such tastes of how many other places might be out there?

For more on this film, see
