    Interesting Gainesville promotional film by the Chamber of Commerce. Lots of familiar but very different sights. Couple of game scenes, homecoming parade, some campus buildings.

    Gainesville circa 1962:

    Good stuff Alex...ah yes, the "whimsical" Santa Fe River...
    I was a little kid from '65 to '69 while my Dad was in school there... good memories in that film.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think the last football scene was of us throwing an INT.
