A one hour long video showing a Bermuda vacation in 1959 has appeared on YouTube, uploaded by ‘FlixVendor’. The video shows various parts of Bermuda as the island was 54 years ago, with shots of Front Street, St George’s, beaches, views of the island from the water, and much more.
The video description on YouTube says, “Join Jim and Kathleen Mac Donald for some fun in the sea sun! This original home movie shows the real world as it once was back in 1959. No scripted Hollywood movie can do that. Filmed in glorious 16mm Kodachrome color, voyage to the people and places of beautiful Bermuda.”
