Historic Videos

In 1950, a gentleman from St. Paul named Gene Kopp (Debbie Mueller's uncle) started filming the major events around St. Paul. He filmed on a 16mm camera which was a higher quality than most people who shot regular 8mm film. Larry Groeblinghoff came upon this box of films in the basement of St. Paul School and took them to Channel 4 where he worked at the time. He copied them and they were ok but he always thought they could look so much better. Just recently he had the films copied at a professional transfer business and the results are amazing. These 70 year old movies look like they were shot yesterday. There is about 4 hours of video to be broken down to 5 minute clips.

We are very thankful to Larry for making it possible for us to share these videos with you.
