Critical Past is a new site that has 57,000 “historic” videos from 1893 to the 1990’s — many of them appear to be old newsreels.

It seems to be designed to sell them for download, but anyone can view them online for free. It has a very nice search feature.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For News & History Videos That Won’t Get Blocked By Content Filters (At Least, Not By Ours!).

I’ve also added it to The Best “Today In History” Sites because it has another feature to easily find out what happened on any date in history.
