Rebecca OConnell

Jeff Altman recently uploaded footage of Seattle taken by his traveling grandfather to YouTube. Altman's grandfather used a 16mm camera to take beautiful videos of the West Coast city. A lot of the footage was taken from planes, so you can see some amazing aerial views of the city and mountains. For another look into the past, check out Altman's video of San Francisco in 1958.
