Beautiful colour footage of Smalltown America, 1954...

This beautifully curated film was sent to How to be a Retronaut by Steve Weintraub. Over to Steve:

“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”

Thank you very much to Steve Weintraub.
