What's New

We fixed some bugs in the video player to make sure you can play a series of videos again if you want to.

We also added a chat feature to let you discuss what you find with other users. Our goal with the chat is to connect you with other users who are discovering historical content that you may not have discovered yet. You can block or report disrespectful users by swiping left on their messages.

App Description

This educational tool allows you to view the history of a location through the lens of old film and video footage. Students can witness the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial, experience the 1900 World's Fair in Paris and see the Anschluß in Vienna, Austria in our growing collection of materials.

As a viewer you will have to be within 150 feet or 50 meters to view the nearby films. You can find other film locations on the map so you will know which areas to visit.

You can also submit your own content to the project by using our MacOS Application to prepare your films. The editing interface allows you to mark scene breaks in your video, identify the date of the scene, it's location and also identify things (people, events, landmarks and organizations) within the scene.
