Montague Massachusetts and Neighbors – ca. 1929

Here is a half hour glimpse of pre-Depression era Montague and it’s neighbors. This 800 (!) feet of 16 mm movie film is provided courtesy of your Montague Historical Society.

Our photographer, director and editor was very skilled in using a home movie camera. This unique print was carefully edited and even includes poetic titles to narrate the story. Many of us will recognize it’s past and present Franklin County landmark surprises! Other scenes paint a picture of our past lifestyle and community.

This is an important film survivor, from our local history, and I hope you find time to enjoy it!
