1960s and 1970s ELIZABETH FORWARD FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL GAME FILMS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
Among the many items that the Donora Historical Society has in its collection are 122 football and basketball games of Mon Valley teams from 1955 to 1979. They are original 16mm game films that are in the process of being converted to DVD. There is no sound. We launched a project in 2015 to start to transfer the films to DVD to not only get them in a usable format to be added to our artifact collection and our presentation offerings, but to get these games in the hands of the players that played in them some 35 to 65 years ago.
