Must See! Old Timey Video of What Missoula Looked Like in the 1930s
This is such a cool video, but you have to watch it a few times to really catch every detail. I LOVE the history of Missoula, although much of it is heartbreaking in regard to the Indigenous people of the Bitterroot being forced to the Flathead, I'm still fascinated with seeing people of the olden days living their lives on Missoula streets that we still frequent today.
I've selected some stills from the video that I think you'll want to take a good, hard look at, trying to spot places on Higgins that still exist and some things that now look very different. I've viewed hundreds of old-timey photos of Missoula and thought I had seen all the videos there were to see, but this one is brand new to me. It was uploaded by a user called RETROJONES in 2020. Check these out.
