Rare color footage of several Ann Arbor businesses and streets in the pre-World War II era is visible in a newly restored film. Ann Arbor-based startup Priceless Photo Preservation has restored an hour-long “movie” belonging to Larry Goetz, owner of 112-year-old Goetzcraft Printers.
The 16-millimeter film — shot by Fostoria, Ohio-based traveling film producer John B. Rogers Co. using technicolor technology in 1939 — shows several structures and businesses that still exist in some form today.
