I’ve been digging through my video tapes that have been piling up in my room – in various locations over the years, and am now glad I have been collecting them, and for a very good reason.
There are times that I have taken a video camera out and just shot random footage of things that I find interesting – or sometimes just want to take a camera out and shoot footage in general for no specific reason. One day in 1993, I went on a ride with an acquaintance of mine, and shot in-drive footage all around Billings, taking in various locations and sights that were there at the time. I went back and watched this footage, and did you know that:
– Dos Machos used to be further up north on 24th St. West, near the Rimrock Mall?
– Wal-Mart and Toys R Us on the west end were just getting constructed?
– We used to have a Bugle Boy Outlet Store in the middle of downtown?
– The Crown Plaza hotel downtown used to be called the Sheraton?
Well, intrepid believer, wonder no more, because I, MidnightBanshi is going to bring this footage to you, courtesy of the wonderous portal known as YouTube! While this video may seem pedestrian to some, some people may actually find this interesting, because it gives a window into the past – more than 20 years ago, driven about the Magic City in a rambling rattletrap of a car with a not-so-clean windshield (hey, this was spur of the moment), but you will see some things that may bring back memories.
As always, please feel free to come by my channel on YouTube. Just look up MidnightBanshi – same handle I use to habitate Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook! See you………out there!
