    Now now,Gordon, I may be old, but I'm not THAT old.

      Now let's just see them figure out how to take all that DOWN!
      They'll position a worker at each tensioner cable with a massive bolt cutters and on the count of three . . . "LOOK OUT BELOW!"

        Hi Sparky,

        Yes, I do have the original color film that I shot with my spartan Brownie Super 8 camera. Fixed focus, no zoom, no sound, manual exposure setting. I still have that camera, and the motor still runs!

            Awesome. I would think that someone could make some high quality color stills from selected frames . . . and maybe a nice DVD.

              And a little sooner than I expected. Here it is, in all its low-quality, no-sound glory.:silent:

                  • Great stuff, Brad! Do you remember what you were thinking as you shot those videos? I never liked the new UD,especially the exterior. Future demolition footage will look eerily similar to your 1974 footage.
                    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

                      unless the new upper deck collapses when they cut the cables.

                            Could I talk you into sending me that, so I could put a piece of music to it?

                              Dear Brad,
                              Thank you for sharing this with us. I've never seen any video images of the renovation before. It's really a great piece of history.

                              • Thanks, folks. I've been sitting on these films for over thirty years, and I was a bit reluctant to put them up because I knew that the capture quality was not that good, but the audience is appreciative, and that's good enough for me. At some point, if/when I get a better capture device, I'll redo the whole process.

                                Monument: You ask what I was thinking? Well, mostly I was thinking to myself, "you have three minutes of film. Don't waste it!" Super 8 cartridges were a lot of money for a 15-year-old back then. Also, it was like, "What are they doing to my beautiful Stadium?" for the first shoot in '74. There was more demolition than construction. When I went back in '75, things looked much better to me.

                                Jimz: All you have to do is establish a YouTube account and upload right from your computer. It took me five minutes start to finish.

                                And to all the rest of you, it is my pleasure to share this little tidbit with you.

                                Brad
