Here’s an explanation for this amazing YouTube video:
In 1948, the Osborn family loaded up their vehicle and headed for West Virginia. Their starting point was Redlands, CA. The film was shot in 1948 with an 8mm movie camera. Back in those days, Route 66 was one of the major west-east routes, thus the theme song, even though the family does travel on other routes besides Route 66. The film was in cans until 2005 when I had it digitalized in order to preserve it and provide a means for distributing the film to other members of the Osborn family.
Wonderful stuff. I hope there’s more vintage Osborn family footage ready to be posted
Music is “Route 66,” by Nat King Cole, naturally.
