At 1080p the quality is amazing.

The thing that struck me was the number of idle men just hanging out in the streets. This most likely was filmed at the tail end of the depression but just before the war.

IMO.

Talk about floating down memory lane..for a few minutes.. Seems like such a quieter time indeed..."if" taken just after the war that is..

That "top down coupe" at the crest of the hill ..was great for me..Can anyone here ID it for us ?



Such a beautiful piece of music to float through that video with......

The Blue Danube waltz by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss II, composed in 1866.
