30-minute main program and over 80-minutes of extra footage on a single DVD. Written and directed by Paul Creager and Square Lake Productions.

It isn’t often that a community has a person who steps up and records its history. Stillwater and the surrounding area were fortunate to have a photographer named John Runk who not only took photographers of the area but also collected photographs in a collections spanning more than 100 years. Runk also enjoyed the newest technology and with his 8mm camera captured a slice of the St. Croix Valley that will live forever in this DVD.

These 8mm films have never before been shown to the public. Togheter with a rich soundtrack, original narration, and DVD extras, they show Stillwater and the St. Croix Valley as they were experienced by the “Greatest Generation”

Bonus features include footage of: Ice Harvest, 1951 Minnesota State Fair, Minnesota State Prison, 1952 Floods, Last Day of the Streetcars, Marine Ferry, Taylors Falls, Views of Stillwater and Loggers Baseball.
