1939 CANADIAN ROYAL VISIT. King George VI & Elizabeth I. Montreal stop. Exclusive Film from 16mm.

This short piece of 16mm film was taken by a former CBC executive while on vacation and spotlights some nice downtown footage of pre-war Montreal as well as the pageantry and parade that surrounded the 1939 Royal Visit. The footage is a bit jumpy and you can tell he didn’t have the best vantage point but it’s still a great historical piece.

NOTE: This film was shot silent.
