Albany St. Lumber Yard (film #1383 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Industrial]

Silent film footage from the 30s of firefighters fighting fires in various Boston locations, including the Albany St. Lumber Yard. Some of the scenes of fires are pretty spectacular while other scenes are murky and hard to see. This is gritty, real firefighting footage, though, so if that interests you, this is a film to check out.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
