Retro St. John's – The Newfoundland capital in 1967

Recognize anybody? This 1967 film shows downtown St. John’s when fishermen from the Portuguese White Fleet played soccer on the harbour apron and CN Coastal boats sailed out of the Narrows. Narrated by former mayor Harry Mews, the film visits the brand new buildings of the MUN campus and the housing development of Churchill Park. You can also and travel down the train line that ran through the city and visit the Regattta.
