Video, Palms on Bayswater, 1964

Video approx. 8 minutes.

This video transfer of a film reel shot in 1964 by early Bayswater resident Clem Layritz shows the median that formerly existed on Bayswater Avenue with the palm trees that were planted there when the property was first subdivided and marketed, around 1896. A few minutes into the film, you can see the removal of some of these trees.
