How about adding more synchronized sound effect LPs With Your silent home Movies?
This video is so awesome 👌
@guy jones I think it was because even though it was war and awful, the comeradry between them was enormous. They would likely never have that again. So I feel that they would be very sad to lose the closeness of the time.
I was looking forward to it and immediately watched it, of course! It was great stuff! I was shocked that some of the soldiers serving were sad that the war was over, that's just odd to process. The lip-reading/voices stuff is next level. However it's still a documentary so it's too bad lots of quick edits are used, some footage was just made like that, alot of it isn't though. I'd love to see professional production companies work on more old footage without the voiceovers! Some more non-war stuff
Guy, have you seen the Peter Jackson film about the First World War? He restored 1914-1918 footage: scanned the film, cleaned it up (removing scratches and dust), used AI to create intermediate frames of footage original shot at 14-18 frames per second to 24 fps, colorised and made it 3D using the latest technologies. Finally he added soundtracks and even speech using lipreaders and actors. The result is like bringing the distant WWI to the present. Wonder what you think about it.
I've seen similar streetcars at the museum west of Milton, ON. This is their website hcry.org/
Dumb question, but how is sound added to these?
At the same time, Goering's aircraft bombed England, and the Russians beat Hitler's troops in Stalingrad in severe frosts... And in the distant Canada peacefully and struggling only... with snow )))) But later they, too, will consider themselves winners!
Did cars have heaters back then?
Where in Ottawa
cars ran pretty dam good back then oh yea we complain about global warming..
*В это время в Ленинграде люди под бомбежками немцев ели людей что бы выжить! \ At this time, in Leningrad, people under the bombing of the Germans ate people to survive!*
Love those hardy skiers going down the street!
Not that I want to give away my engineering ideas. Our up coming Otrain (confederation line) should have been built as a mono rail, suspended. No tracks to shovel, no one would be run over by a train. Above traffic so vehicles could still run unimpeeded. The only land to be taken up is were the supports have t be located. And on top of this beautiful mono rail, a beautiful bicycle path. Washrooms and vendors along the way at transit stops. Ottawa always picks the most expensive, highly potential to cost overages and time delays, projects they can think of. Image the views of the city riding that rail. No fumes or exhaust to control, no pumping stations running 24/7 to prevent flooding. Less crime because things are not hidden underground. As an ex-city of Ottawa employee, who worked in specialized transit for twenty years, they have reduced me to collecting a Social Services check.
They had break the ice in order to use the trolly wow
I feel so bad for the guys that have to shovel the road
Thanks guy for your great work! I would absolutely support your channel if I was not a broke mofo lol
Just chilling during a blizzard watching a blizzard that happened nearly 80 years ago... Nice job synching the sounds of the various machines/activities!
Why wouldn't they just use a snowplow?
AndyT They do. It’s at the end of the video.The snow has to be broken up first because it’s packed down from cars driving over it.
3:03 -- bilboard in the background for Sweet Caporal cigarettes and the Laurier Tea Room :)!
And then they discovered street-salt.
Some of these buildings are still standing and then as now winter weather wrecks havoc with public transportation. I think those two people you see skiing down the street have the right idea!
Very clever and realistic aound
Nice to see road worker safety conditions have improved lol.
The footage is so clear considering it's from 1942, thanks for posting, it's probably one of the best examples of the city during the winter back then.
you almost can feel the hard snow shoveling,when ice melt and refilled tracks
If you look at around 1:55 there is an ad on the streetcar for "Duke Ellington and his famous orchestra" playing nearby. What a show that must have been whoa
How’s she going, eh?
Wow, thanks for preserving and sharing these. Definitely subscribing.
Really? Where in Ottawa was this ??
Thank you man, I mean guy!
Esses vídeos são sensacional maravilha incrível parabéns, obrigado, Brasil.
0:47Just in shirts in winter?Noticed Shell gas station, Coca Cola sign, traffic lights
@jw200 they were tougher ppl than us, see the women in dresses and just tights, as opposed to what gear we would be donning to go walk around in those temperatures.
If one more person honks at me, I am going to quit shoveling!
No fleuro gear for the workers, no barricades or cones or slow down signs - great video, I can't imagine how cold it would be
that's when people knew what "Hard Work" actually was !!! today there are very few people, young people specifically that understand that concept
1:56 Duke Ellington
At. :046 I was just up from there at the corner of Bank and Catherine this morning.Just a few sprinkles of snow pellets and slightly above freezing. That train bridge became a freeway overpass in 1964. If the film is from the end of December its usually similar to this. Christmas is usually mild but New Years eve is often brutal.
Just passing by..
Amazing stereo sound recording at that time! I can hear different channels when vehicles passed by
Nothing has changed there are just more gays in Ottawa now and the govt workers are more lazy.
We are here, we are queer, and we are FABULOUS. #OttawaPride
They shoulda just poured 12282736261537271 tons of salt on the road, like we do now.
O C transpo. For ya ... shitty then shitty now!
Woulda been cool to see Duke
1:31 My father restored that model of truck to perfection by himself back in the late'70's. We took it out to shows in BC, Alberta and as far as California.
Crazy that everyone in this video is dead now
Jeopardy ProfessionalSo what you’re saying is you’re an asshole. Thanks for the clarification.By the way, shit-for-brains, 20 in 1943 means 95 today, lots of people here still going strong at that age. You’re already dead from the neck up, hopefully the rest will soon follow.
@Daniel Millar buddy there's no kids in the video every1 in this video is dead no matter how bad u don't wanna admit it 😆
Jeopardy ProfessionalNot really, my mother and father, aunts, uncles, all around still, would have been children, young adults in 1943, and lived in that area!
Caplans was still around in the 1980s!
Neat footage.... seems bitter cold.
The foley work on this is amazing.
It was a shithole then and a shithole now..
Thanks for sharing these videos!!
i love old cars and sound....thx...greats from Austria👍👍👍
Странно, вроде бы сильный мороз, а люди одеты совсем легко, как теплой осенью
Outstanding thanks for posting!
Your work is so important to all of us! By that I mean people all over the world
I'm from morocco and i like so Much the old years in the world
I wonder when Moroccan video will surface...
Send me back here please !
OC transpo was not fun back then
Interestingly enough, the trams here would have been owned and operated by the Ottawa Electric Railway company (OER) which was incorporated in 1893, a private company operating under a franchise from the city. Some time between 1948 and 50, the city purchased the OER assets for 6.3 million dollars and formed the Ottawa Transportation Commission known also as The OTC. The electric trams (street cars) were replaced buses in the late 50's and the last tram ran on May 1st 1959. OC Transpo (Ottawa Carleton Transportation Commission) came into effect in 1973 when the responsibility for the service came under the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. The Regional Municipality is gone but the name is still here. Personally I am excited to see electric trains return to Ottawa (some day???)
Some very cold trams.
At the end you have two bulldozers moving the electric snowplow along. three blades available but the only snow getting moved is the men with pick axes.
clunyThats ice, plows cant dig it out of the tracks which are beneath the road surface, hence the men with pick axes chipping at the ice, shovels to find the tracks, the plows are merely pushing the derailed car . Fun times!I missed that winter by 13 years, but the landmarks are still there. That is the rail overpass on Bank Street that is now the Queensway, and later you see Patterson Creek and the apartments that are still there. My grandfathers were in Europe, both survived, thank God, one survived Dieppe, N. Africa and D-day landings. One grandmother was building aircraft in Mechanicsville while the other was in the middle of raising ten kids!I saw the last trip of the last streetcar, my dad was a photographer for the Ottawa Journal and we went to Britannia Park to see it retired - the station is still there too.There used to be a small section of track still visible in a parking lot between Queen and Laurier on Kent Street, the “barn” where the trains slept at night was in that area, but is long gone - not sure if the tracks are still visible.Can’t wait to show my parents this - my mother and her nine siblings lived not far from this location, they may even be in this film!Thanks to the poster for the beautiful restoration, great job!
never been there, but would have expected more text in French.
Only in the Quebec province are the signs and stuff in french text, even back in the 40s. Ottawa has always been pretty anglo since the British Empire had control over it; plus it was Queen Victoria's "choice" to make Ottawa the Canadian capital because of geo-political reasons more than anything else! Today, all the official government signs are written both in English and in French in Ottawa and a lot of people are bilingual, but there was a divide between the British and French owned areas back then and that's still an issue today. So yeah, don't come to Ottawa expecting the full franco-canadian experience, but luckily just across the river it's Quebec so you can go there to see stop signs written as "arrêt" haha
Thanks for this great video, it sure takes me back. I wasn't born until 1953 but remember the neighborhood well from the 60's when the winters were brutal as well. I could even see our old church at 600 bank street. Many of the beautiful buildings are still there. Well done!
No snow plows. Grrrr
