Haven't you ever wanted to travel back in time to see what places looked like ten, twenty, thirty or even 50 years before? I know people around Acadiana can tell you it wasn't that long ago that Ambassador Caffery Parkway was a two lane road. They will tell you that the Acadiana Mall was way out of town. They will also tell you that South College Street in Lafayette was once upon a time the city limits.

Since time travel has yet to be perfected we have to rely on memories and old movies. The trouble with both of those is they become faded over time. That is what makes this video taken by a French tourist in 1939 so amazing. The video documents a trip to New York City and the quality is amazing. Want to take a trip back in time some 75 years?
