St. Petersburg, Florida 1940 in stunning color (video)

Rickey Yaneza

Historical footage of St. Petersburg, Florida found on the Internet Archive was given the color treatment (and image stabilization) and the results are stunning.

A/V Geeks who shared the video on YouTube warned that these are all fake and not the real colors. Plus the film was boosted to 60 FPS on video and converted to HD, so consider this a remix, not accurate and not historical. Oh, and they added sound. Definitely not the real thing.

But we could still imagine what could have been the past right?

Press play to watch the video below.

The original black and white footage is at the Internet Archive.
