Who couldn’t use an escape to Nantucket for a week or five right about now? I know I sure can. My pal Stephen sent me a link to the below video of Nantucket c.1950 about a year ago and I remember thinking how terrific the clips are and that they would be interesting fodder for this space. The YouTube user Lipwak (who could have America’s WASPiest collection of YouTube videos) has posted a few dozen home movies from his grandparents collection, everything from Bermuda to West Point. Some of my favorites are below.
Football at the Yale Bowl
Stamford, New London, Montauk by Boat 1920s
