When I started the Old America series I had an idea of what I was doing, but not a tag for it. That was weeks ago. History is speeding up now as we rush toward dissolution. Now we have a minor warlord in charge of a six block area in the heart of a major city. They are calling it a separate country and the United States, the State of Washington, and the local governments haven't figured out how to respond to this secession .
So today we will look at Seattle. In 1955. Sixteen millimeter home movies taken by a Naval Reservist showing scenes of the city as well some aerial footage during operations. It looks like it was quite a city.
