Vintage Video Showing Harlem in the 1930s

This fantastic video showing bits of Harlem, the Cotton Club, and Duke Ellington in the 1930s was recently restored and uploaded by YouTuber Guy Jones.

Interesting captures of Harlem in the 1930’s, city life and nightclub scenes. Shows the Cotton Club, and some shots of Duke Ellington and band. Set the sped-up footage to a natural rate and added in the soundtrack (the film is silent, despite opening credits). Thanks to British Pathe
