Recently unearthing 8mm video footage of Cleveland in the 1930s, YouTube user G Cast has offered up a rare digitized glimpse of what it was once like to live, work and play in our fair city.

Using colorized and black-and-white footage — try not to pay attention to the cheesy background music here — the moving images capture moments of mundane life. No one here is doing anything especially fascinating; rather, the film features people catching rides on street cars, building roads, strolling through University Circle and sledding with friends.

Watch the whole video below and see what other Cleveland spots you can make out:
