Show All Flashback 1920s - 1940s Titles City Of The 1930's - A Portrait Of America
This title is like opening a time capsule of America with footage from the 1930’s and 1940’s. There is excellent footage of Americans living and working in the country, living and working in a steel mill town, life in New York City, and life in the suburbs in the 1940’s.

Scenes Include:

Country scenes include a waterwheel, gristmill, kids at the swimming hole, hitching a ride on a farmer’s wagon, blacksmith shop, repairing a wagon wheel, and wide-open spaces.

Steel mill town scenes show dirty air as pollution pours from the smokestacks of factories, crowded, row type housing next to train tracks, trains, kids playing on the tracks, and minimum conveniences.

New York City scenes show crowded sidewalks, traffic congestion, rules & regulations, but much better dressed people and a cleaner working environment.

Scenes from the suburbs shows an aerial view of a modern housing tract, parks, playgrounds, schools, supermarkets and modern conveniences (washing machine). Kids riding bicycles in a park, kids on a slide, kids on a seesaw, kids on monkey bars, kids on a merry-go-round, kids on a swing, supermarket, kids drawing & painting in school. There are flashbacks contrasting life in the city and life in the suburbs for both children and adults.
