|Downtown Guelph (1955)|
One of the great treats of seeing photos from Downtown Guelph's past is how immediately evocative it is; it's both familiar and alien at the exact same time. But photos are one thing, seeing the whole place in action, in living colour, on film is a completely different experience, but it's one we can enjoy thanks to the following discovery by Vintage Guelph. The exact time and date the film was taken is unknown - sometime in the 1960s or 70s certainly - but this is definitely a treat for local history buffs (like myself).
