More vintage home movie footage of Bermuda in the pre-World War Two [1939-1945] era has been restored and posted online by Nova Scotia’s provincial archives.

The scenic 1933 footage was taken during a holiday trip to Bermuda, Bahamas and Jamaica.

The newly posted footage was shot by John B. Porter (1861-1943), a mining engineer and amateur filmmaker, who travelled extensively around the world and took 16mm moving pictures of his travels.

He lived in Montreal, summered in Guysborough, and wintered in California.
