Stunning old Bermuda footage, 1940's - in Colour!
13 DEC, 2013: Take a stunning glimpse into our island's rich history with this wonderful footage of Bermuda in the 1940's. The 16mm film was recorded by Captain Fred Clipper of the US Army who was stationed in Bermuda, and then married a local girl and built a life here. Recently brought to light by archivist David Meyer, the film captures a bygone era when cedar trees were plentiful, the island's roads were just dirt tracks and there were only a handful of motor vehicles. Scenes include the old railway, Gombeys, children flying kites and a game of (American) football between the Army and Navy.
