Mystery footage found of 1915 Chicago River disaster

“A US doctoral candidate found the footage, which is housed at a Netherlands film institute, while doing online research for his dissertation on Chicago during the First World War.

The clips were spliced between footage of marching soldiers and ceremonies, and it’s not clear how it got there. “That’s part of the intrigue, part of the mystery behind even having this footage available,” says Wachholz.”
