Altoona Documentary from the 1960's - watch it here!

Stumbled on this old documentary about Altoona, filmed in the 1960's by WFBG-TV.  It's kinda dismal, but fascinating anyway.

compared to what you see today, I can only think of one word:W O W!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It seems they were more interested in getting a new car!!!!!! They sure as hell weren't concerned about their most treasured possesion: THEIR HOME!!!!!!!! As for downtown, why the city fathers let it go downhill like it did, what can you say except SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
