B&W silent 16mm film

Post by jfreelan1964 » Sat May 10, 2008 9:47 am

Hi Everyone I am rather new to this forum here.

I have a real of 16mm film that I bought on Ebay recently.
It is 100ft reel of film silent B&W from a (mailing label) Mr. J.W.Conyers The Baldwin Locomotive Work, Paschall Post Office Philadelphia.

It is the second half of 2 reels.

My question is would the resident Baldwin Historian recognize this name?
And where would be the best place to send this film for Archiving?

I have had this film converted to DVD-R and thinking of posting on youtube for a short time.

Any replies is greatly appreciated.

Jim: What is on the film ? Are they locomotives being built, delivered, shipped ?

I wish it was building locomotives.

It is in the Apprentice shop. with apprentices are learning the trade.

Although it looks like play time for most of it.

The film is about three minutes long, 2 min. of people, the last min. of credits.
