Archival footage from (South) Africa: 1920s

I suppose it is historically consistent in that the video portrays (South) Africa as a place where one is more likely to see wildlife than people. Interesting video that pays particular attention to Cecil Rhodes, his work, and his grave. Anyway you cut it, this is just some fascinating archival footage.

And this one, which is a little goofier (yet still incredible) for its inexplicable focus on action shots of wildlife. My favorite quote: “a vicious motley throng, ever fighting among themselves, like pirates over treasure.”
