Kodacolor Home Movies of Quebec (1929)

This amateur film made in 1929 shows a family holiday at the waterfront and was likely shot in the Charlevoix region of Quebec. Men and women smoke and pose while the children play. According to film historian, Louis Pelletier, it may be the oldest colour film of the region.

A Union Jack and the apparent wealth of the family indicate that they were anglophones. On the YouTube site Pelletier asks for help identifying the locations and individuals featured.
