Found a relic from the Cold War at a garage sale.

How cool is this and how timely is it today.

16mm 24 minute educational film used in class rooms.

NUCLEAR WEAPONS:
CAN MAN SURVIVE?

1. That's so cool. I love finding interesting treasures...

At garage sales, auctions and such. It's like opening up a tiny portal and seeing a glimpse of the past.

4. I'm very jealous.

I like to use film in weaving and love history. Odd, I know. I wouldn't use your find most likely, so it's a super cool find, imo it would make great art, though. Now you need a projector so that you can watch it!

6. Speaking of History

I also found an interesting book, Franchise, by Mrs. Belle L. Rudy. Only about 83 pages and appears to be an early women's rights book. Dated 1895. Looking on line I've seen some reprints, not sure if this is an early reprint or not. Look to be very vintage

Part of preface.
The full purpose is to convey to beloved woman the freedom of thought, speech, and above all the freedom and equality of the ballot. Whereby the legislation of our country may be purified.

9. For some reason I thought you said "Civil War"

Then when I read "16mm 24 minute educational film"
I thought:

"Huh?"
