"Two Early Rutland Films". Jim Davidson and Chuck Piotrowski co-host the showing of a 1914 movie film of events at the Rutland Carnival in downtown Rutland and at the 1914 Rutland Fair. This 10-minute film is the oldest Rutland film in the Society's collections. The second film is a 9-minute 1919 film taken at the Rutland Fairgrounds on the occasion of an honor day for the Rutland County veterans of World War I. The films are silent films with brief textual commentaries.
