The Society is offering three different DVDs that show life in South Pittsburg, Tennessee more than fifty years ago. All these rare films were originally shot on old 16mm Kodak movie film. They have now been digitally restored and placed on DVD for your viewing enjoyment. Here's what you get:
South Pittsburg, Tennessee - Your Town on Parade - 1941
Shot in November 1941, this half-hour film is partly in color, which, at the time, was not readily available. The film shows various scenes around town including the downtown, businesses, churches, schools and people just to name a few.
South Pittsburg, Tennessee - A Day in Our School!
(117:31 minutes combined total)
This DVD contains a series of three color films shot at the South Pittsburg Elementary School in 1954, October 1955 and March 1961. These are a unique look into early grade school education in this small Tennessee town. Film features faculty, students, plays, recess, school prayer and many scenes of interest.
South Pittsburg, Tennessee - Your Town on Parade - 1954
The last DVD offered was originally shot in February 1954. It shows what real life was like in South Pittsburg at that time. Scenes include the downtown, businesses, churches, schools, people and much more.
