A combination of two films and three different audio clips make up this two minute video. We start with some mid 60's footage of San Francisco at night with some gorgeous neon signs and added some sound. Here are the elements of this mashup.

Arthur H. Smith - Signs of the Times
http://archive.org/details/ArthurH.Smith-SignsOfTheTimes
Arthur Smith was born in Silver Spring, Nevada in 1909 and passed away in 2000 after having lived in the Bay Area and Big Bear Lake, California. According to his typewritten autobiography, after high school he began working for the Pacific Telephone Company as a telephone repairman. He was asked by the company to make a sponsored film for them, and he was later promoted to first level management at Pacific Telephone. Smith produced a variety of instructional and safety films for the Bell System, including his most widely seen film "How to Prevent Backing Accidents." Smith also wrote extensively about his technical professional film work, as well as his creative amateur work, with numerous articles in "American Cinematographer," "Home Movies," and "Popular Photography."

The Arthur H. Smith collection was donated to the Center for Home Movies by Smith's son Dennis (along with other Smith family films).
