Cross Country with the Osborn Family (1948)

A little background on this video:

In 1948, the Osborn family loaded up their vehicle and headed for West Virginia. Their starting point was Redlands, CA. The film was shot in 1948 with an 8mm movie camera. Back in those days, Route 66 was one of the major west-east routes, thus the theme song, even though the family does travel on other routes besides Route 66.
