Today, making a movie is as easy as pulling out your phone—but in the 1920s, moviemaking equipment wasn’t something the average person carried around in his pocket. That’s what makes the James Dimond Home Movie Collection so valuable: the Dimond family captured life in the Midwest between 1927 and 1935, including visits to Minnehaha Falls and Camden State Park. The movies are now in the collection of the Walker Art Center, where they are screening daily until September 16.
