Play time: seven minutes, 10 seconds. This second of two video re-creations
of a film taken in Vintondale in 1938 features hundreds of elementary
and high school students, school teachers and staff, at the schools,
and miners coming out of the mine. See
the previous installment for details about how the video came about.
The narration by Julius Morey, president of Vintondale Fire Company
when it commissioned the film in 1938, was added for its transferrence
to videotape in 1995. The
1938 film also includes highlights of that year's Firemen's Convention,
which will be posted here later, as a general-interest Cambria County
Video Jonal this week. The Video Jonals are personal reminiscences made by yours
truly, but since the processing of this video was similarly time-consuming, I
will not be adding a new "Jonal" this week.
