British Pathe, The World's First Digital News Archive, is an archive of 3,500 hours of historic news footage. These were the films shown before a feature at the cinema back when two films and a cartoon were only a nickel, and you could stay all day. Since the site closely guards its copyrights, I can't show you any embedded videos here. But visit the site to experience everything from the 20s revolution to the Hippie revolution. One notable video on 1920s women's careers and fashion is here: Time to Remember--Teenage Flapper, 1920.
