Man Born in 1867 Talks About Working in the 1880s - Filmed in 1930

  1. This guy is only 63. Seems more like someone who would be in their late 70s, early 80s now. Really interesting.

  2. “So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you’d say. Now where were we, oh ya. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time…”

  3. For an older man not from Hollywood, to be on film must have been a scary thing in 1930. He had his lines memorized. He's nervous but he doesn't stumble. Imagine having that $5 gold piece now.

  4. Imagine being his great great + grandkids having this to watch. Our grandkids will be able to piece together almost minute by minute our days through social media and eventually surveillance.

  5. As someone who has been on video shoots where a corporate individual has to read off a promoter in modern times, it’s kinda funny to see the same thing from 1930
