Gay Street at Night, (1940)

 This very brief 16mm home movie clip, shot by A.J. Wardrep, was discovered on the tail-end of a decomposed reel of film. Amazingly, this historic piece of footage managed to survive, and depicts downtown Knoxville as it looked 70 years ago. Watch out for the original Riviera and Tennessee Theatre marquees!
