Title

George Flowers Movie Collection #9: Flowers Family and Blue Ridge Parkway, 1960s

Subject

George Flowers, Flowers Family, Blue Ridge Parkway, Twin Tunnels

Description

Reel #9 of the films in the George Flowers Collection, this undated (1960s) 8mm reel begins with footage of George Flowers with posing with extended family. At the 1:52 mark, the footage transitions to scenes that were likely shot along the Blue Ridge Parkway while riding in a car, including what appears to be footage of the Twin Tunnels at Mile Post 344. Portions of the footage along the Blue Ridge Parkway are very dark and difficult to discern.
