Smalltown America, 1954, in colour

“I recently acquired a 20 minute reel of 16mm silent color home movies, shot in Maplewood, New Jersey. Cars and clothes have changed, though the buildings and landscape remain much the same. The exposures are a bit uneven, but you get a very good flavor for everyday life in a typical American suburb. Enjoy”

    I live very near this town in NJ and I bet you could take the very same film today. Just think, those kids in the swimming pool are in their 70′s!!
