Some cool old videos
Nothing new. Stuff that's out there already but all in one convenient location.
Coke ovens burning at Shoaf. Somewhere there has to be more of this. It certainly looks like outtakes of something. Probably late 1960's.
People living in coke ovens during the Great Depression. The winter of 1935, filmed by Universal Newsreels. Once again, there has to be more footage.
1904 Westinghouse film. Wilmerding to Trafford. There are many more of these available on the Library Of Congress website but this is just one. I like this one. It's nice railroad footage.
