Watch: Las Vegas Circa ’62 & San Francisco ’58

I love how you can see the edge of the 16mm film flashing by.

Just dreamy.

Though I’ve been in SF for well over a decade, I lived in Vegas for years and would go there every summer while growing up in Chicago. To say I have a soft spot for the “old” Vegas would be like saying I just sorta-kinda like beer.


See San Francisco 1958:  

Colorist Jeff Altman transferred these amazing Kodachrome videos of his Grandparents’ travels and is sharing them on his Vimeo. Go explore and be sure to check out the Disneyland footage. (Thanks for the tip, Ty)
