These Old Home Movies Were Found Deep In An Attic. The Story Behind Them Is Absolutely Lovely…

Town historian, Bill Poray, is well known for his amazing ability to reconnect people with their past. In a town along the Eerie Canal, Bill found a box of old films in a dusty attic. He thought nothing of it, until he sat down and discovered something brilliant and quite rare in each film strip.

The films were entirely in color, which is an uncommon gem for 1930s home movies. The hot new technology, Kodak’s “Standard 8,” was used to capture the colorful story. Although this new camera was on the market, color didn’t regularly start appearing in amateur films until years later.
