This video was shot on Dave Bloom's family trip to Europe in 1923, including Dave, his wife Kate, my mother Naomi (at age 3) and her older sister Ruth (at age 5).

The video was shot (mostly by Dave) using the Movette film, a 17.5 mm format that has long been discontinued. The excellent work of recovering this footage and archiving it to video was done by Russ Suniewick of ColorLab (in Baltimore, MD). The editing was done by me (Michael Rothschild) and the narration was done by my mother (and Dave's daughter), Naomi Bloom Rothschild.

While the narration states that the movie is set in Holland, it seems that at least some of the urban scenes may be elsewhere in Europe.
