Found Film: Daily Family Life Pre-WII War in America

This is an 8mm home movie film.  It shows the daily family 1940’s life pre-WWII War.  The film begins with a beautiful lady in a white dress & veil.  It seems like an unusual wedding dress, but I can not think of why else she would be in this attire.  The film then cuts to two young girls practicing their dance moves. 

There is a school bus, and two other pretty girls exit and walk up the driveway with school books in hand.  Then we see a stern looking woman takes a suitcase to a car.  She gets in and leaves.  Some great images of the black and white cat in the yard are next.  Family tug-a-war without a rope is next.  Looks like a fun family picnic or maybe even a reunion based on the number of children.

I love the ladies fashion of this time period and the little girl’s hair.  I can not imagine getting a three year old to sit still long enough to do it like that.

How did you digitize this film?

We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.

It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
