These videos were taken by Harry Bricker, Jud Bricker’s father, between 1932 – 1935. They depict his family and relatives in Brooklyn, at Rockaway Beach and in the Adirandocks on vacation. They are listed here in the order they appeared on the DVDs. They were originally filmed on 8 mm tape, then converted to VHS by Jud Bricker and finally transferred by Jud to DVD. Jud mailed me 2 DVDs which I then digitized and separated into short clips. I have grouped the clips from each DVD separately. Enjoy! Tara Note: Arnold was born in 1925 and Jud was born in 1927
