Virtual Screening: On the Vineyard – Summer Vacation in 1940 and 1941 with the James Family

In 2019, the Museum received a donation of a remarkable short film made by summer visitor Charles M. James. Shot in color during the summers of 1940 and 1941, this film offers a detailed glimpse of Island summers from 80 years ago. Recently digitized and being shown for the first time ever, the film is narrated by Research Librarian Bow Van Riper, who will discuss the places, people and vessels captured by Mr. James. The Museum is grateful to Dwight Kulwin, who donated the film.

This program is pre-recorded and will go live on our YouTube channel.
