The Case of the Missing Videotape

In July 1996, Herb Fry published a History Quarterly article about the June 1952 celebration of Berwyn's 75th Anniversary. Herb described a videotape (which was itself derived from the original movie film) recording the Sunday parade down Lancaster Avenue. One would like to think that the videotape has survived in the TEHS archives. Alas, it has not yet made it there, and the mystery of its whereabouts remains unsolved. Does anyone have a copy of the video, or know where it might be obtained? The Society would be eager to transfer it to a digital medium, and also provide a copy to the owner or donor. Please contact us with any information that might help us locate this historic movie.
