The Internet Archive this week promoted its ‘Tourist For a Day’ series of POV (point-of-view) videos.  Sunset Boulevard in 1952 is one of them.

I’ve been fascinated by Los Angeles ever since Lucy and Desi moved there in 1955. If you like old cars, ’50s architecture and signage… and palm trees, this point-of-view drive down Sunset Boulevard in 1952 may catch your attention as it did mine. 

The Internet Archive Team has assembled a list of 160 cities you can visit virtually. Most of the videos are current, however, I also found film of the Liberation of Paris in 1944.
