Video of Coral Gables in 1950

Someone sent me a link to this kicky, kitschy, video of Coral Gables in 1950, from an ad promoting Chevrolets.

Many of the scenes are recognizable today, although Parrot Jungle has moved from its wonderful nearby location.

UM features at the beginning; campus attire has changed even more than the buildings, most of which are still around if not so spanking new any more.
