Mother’s birthday, kitchen bar party, clambake, and camping--Adams--home movies

We’re gearing up for Home Movie Day, and our home movie highlights continue with this piece from the Fredrick C. Adams Collection. Filmed in the mid-1920s, this is one of the earliest home movies in our collection and features shots from a private house party, a clambake, and camping on Stratton Mountain. Selections from the party scenes were included in Ken Burns’ 2011 documentary series, Prohibition.
Visit the MIRC Digital Video Repository for more films.
