The video above was posted on Spacing Magazine’s blog, and I absolutely loved watching it. Listening to it alone would’ve sufficed, but seeing the grainy Technicolor technology was fantastic. It reminded me of all the film I used to watch in class on reel-to-reel when the lights would be shut off and the screen pulled down in front of the blackboard.
I specifically remember the “film” about apple cider production in Ontario, tornadoes, volcanoes, and many others.
So, if you want a nice, brief history of Toronto and Ottawa, watch the video…it was nice to get rebuffed on that information.
