Mom's uncle was always shooting video with a color camera, but no sound in those times. Has some footage of the steam engine that went up by the place and the blasting of the dam site at Tobique Narrows. My relatives were the original homesteaders in that area and the dam site was their home place, house and barns and other buildings. They were evicted off the land, with a small compensation. The old man died that winter, the whole episode killed him. It was his father who was the original settler.

My mother's relatives came from Flagstaff.
I stayed up and watch and taped the whole thing. Well worth it.
