Description

Reel #10 of the films in the George Flowers Collection, this undated (1960s) 8mm reel begins with footage of the Flowers family at an unidentified beach. At the 1:07 mark, the footage transitions briefly to glimpses of a significant snowstorm in Boone, NC, possibly the famed 1960 Blizzard (which was actually several snowstorms over a seven-week period). The snow footage appears to have been filmed from the front of the Flowers Photo Shop in the Qualls Block on West King Street and includes shots of Hunt's Department Store and the Jones House. At the 1:42 mark, the footage again transitions to footage shot from within the Flowers Photo Shop looking out at West King Street.
