My mom was born in August 1950, so 63 would be about right. I was guessing she was maybe 11 or 12 in the video so 1963 would be pretty close

Thanks for posting those videos. My mom started going as a young girl in the 1970s she loved seeing those. Great finds!

Nice find Pappy! It's always really cool seeing older videos of the city.

I was browsing YouTube and came across some SDC videos I had never seen before (sorry if anyone else has already posted these). The first one is a real gem. It shows the old depot and train running in the opposite direction. So, it really is from 1962. Notice the train is only pulling one car. There are scene of the "Donkey Pack Train" which is one I had never seen any video of before. As I watched these, I kept expecting to see my 4 year old self in the crowd, but did not. It's almost like looking through a window in time. This is probably the closest we will come to have a time machine to go back to the beginnings of SDC. The video is very clear in all of these compared to some others we have seen.

I've seen the 1970's one before, but not the other two. Good finds, thanks for sharing!

Mom was born in 1950. The youngest aunt in 1960. She appears to be pretty young in the video.  Could be 63 probably not much after that
