British Pathé has been making newsreels since the First world War--and just put 85,000 historic films online for free in a special Youtube channel. There are plenty of news outlets and bloggers digging through the content and finding neat things. Is there anything from the Northwest?
A quick search reveals more regional content than one might expect in this British news source. Some of the highlights include:
- Great video of the president at Grand Coulee!
- Interesting shots of the '48 Columbia River flood.
There is so much more! Search within the Pathe collection for terms unique to the northwest--I searched "Spokane," "Seattle," "Oregon," and "Columbia River. Tell us what you find in the comments below, or on the Northwest History Facebook page.
