1930’s Glass Bottom Boats Silver Springs State Park Florida

This is a very cool 8mm color found home movie I found in a Facebook group for sale with about 15 other films.  It was taken during the 1930s at the Silver Springs State Park in Florida.  The film begins with views shot from the boat looking towards the lake and shoreline.  The birds and shorelines are beautiful. Lots of children and adults take advantage of the waters at the park. What a much simpler time this was when kids could run around a state park free of any thoughts of danger.

This is an 8mm black & white home movie film.  It was taken at a pep rally at Riley High School in Fort Wayne Indiana.  The film starts with a car with speakers on the roof.  Then, a game part football and part basketball are played on the field while the cheerleaders dance on the sidelines.  The camera pans to the students and facility who watch the activities.  At the end of the footage, the marching band led by the majorettes marches around the track on the outer edge of the field.
