« on: March 10, 2013, 06:03:31 AM »
Ok, so i was searching around again & found this. The info says it is from 1960, & it only has 8 views! All the SDC fun starts at the 5:54 mark & lasts till the 8:06 mark. I found 1 more that i will post after ya all enjoy this one, & it has the "green trams" in it. :D

That's great.

My earliest memories of SDC, it was more developed than that, but not by much!

The hangman's rope from a tree...with a citizen to assist you with your home movie or photo, continued until the late '70's, or early, early '80's. My aunt has a super 8 film of me in 1978 at SDC, getting "hung" by the hangman at a tree that was out in front of the rest rooms across from where Fried Fancies is today. I wish I could obtain a copy of that.

Here is the other video, from 1970. The fun starts at the 11:17 mark & ends at the 16:40 mark. It is from the Oklahoma Historical Society, i checked about 100+ of their videos to see if i could find any more. No luck.

Yoy will see the ol' trams right at the beginning, stagecoach rides. And Junior, who is the guy in the red shirt at the 13:40 mark? Enjoy everyone!!
