Functions of a City (1950s)

Bid on the complete, original 16mm print on eBay through 12/01/2006!
This hard-to-find print from Progressive documents the various functions of a city from fire control and policing, to water refinement and zoning challenges. Features drowning victim, old jails, theft, fingerprinting, play grounds and children, parks, swimming pools, traffic flow. Lots of great cityscape and street shots (pedestrians and cars).

We here at ThinkStream Films really like these drowning scenes. They are suspensful and dramatic! It is curious just how many people actually seem to drown in these films.









Note: The following clip was taken directly from the original 16mm print and has been edited to a mere fraction of the film's original length.




Comments:
Looking around some areas, I have to wonder if zoning laws are still in effect. Hummmmmmmm
 
Here in Houston, you know, there is no such thing as "zoning." Hmmmm....
