April is officially National Local History Month, a month to study and celebrate our small town roots.
I was lucky enough to come across a rather large trove of never before seen film footage of Castro Valley. A friend who works at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley was then able to digitize the film for me, I spliced it together with some contemporary interviews. I’m very proud of this piece, it is the culmination of a lot of hard work, all done by volunteers. I especially need to thank Kane Ashton, Ellie Welsh-Ferrerya, and Shawna Buchanan for their tireless efforts and continuing moral support as we worked to prepare this in time for National Local History Month.
Please share this tiny nugget of Castro Valley antiquity with all of your friends, family, and CV fanatics.
