This wonderful video was taken August 14, 1945 in Honolulu Hawaii the Day Japan surrendered and was then misplaced or lost. Following his death his daughter discovered it. The quality is excellent and the music background is really wonderful. Do yourself a favor watch this as it is a vivid piece of our history and as it says at the end the sacrifices made by our parents and other good citizens are the reason we still speak English.
Great video of a Spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu in 1945. Take a look at this video-absolutely fabulous!
Notice the cars and jeeps, youth.
The guys in khaki or gray shirts and black ties are Navy officers or chiefs. The rest are Army or Marine. How young they all were to do what they did.
This guy really captured a moment in history! This is a super video of a time past – we need to remember and be THANKFUL.
Check out the color fidelity. It’s not bad for 1945. Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.
