Check Out These Vintage Film Featuring New York City Street Interviews on Fashion in 1930

This interesting vintage film from March, 1930 features an "inquiring cameraman from the Newsreel Theater" asks New Yorkers on the street whether they prefer short or long skirts on women. It was restored and uploaded by YouTuber and historian Guy Jones.

"Long skirts or short skirts?" Asking the important questions to strangers in New York City, March 1930. This is taken with the early Movietone sound cameras. Worked on footage and sound a bit. How unusual to see man-on-the-street interviews from this long ago!
