To all of my shipmates who give a ship about American maritime history

please watch this amazing video I just discovered on YouTube

//youtu.be/x8RszOQwWGY

I am this moment rendered nothing but speechless watching this…

WHAT NATION WAS THIS FILMED IN? NOT THE USA OF 2014 BUT SOME OTHER LAND LOST TO TIME! WHAT A GREAT COUNTRY WE ONCE WERE THAT WE COULD ACCOMPLISH SUCH A MIRACLE OF PRODUCTION?

Now it is all lost to the mists of time…never to be seen again except for grainy films with bad sound, but thank God such films were made and survive today!

Some impressive songs and singing especially by some guys called the “Wilson Family”. Nice commentary about the upcoming play this will be part of and actual life in and around a place where the yard was part of the town.
