Courthouse Docket

Summertime: Films from the Archives

The Courthouse Docket continues with Summertime: Films from the Archives. The selected films depict life on the Peninsula in the early 1900s.
Left: During a 1915 baseball game, the participants played for the cameras with the umpires dressed as clowns.

Recorded prior to World War II, all of them are silent movies. In the tradition of old movie theatres, music from the time period has been added to each film.

The first film highlights a 1915 baseball game where the “Single Men” of Santa Clara University compete against the “Married Men” of Redwood City. The second includes a polo competition held in Hillsborough prior to World War I. The third features a Boy Scout group on a camping trip in San Mateo County in the 1930s. The fourth includes highlights from the 1937 County Fair, including a rodeo.

The July Courthouse Docket is part of An Old-Fashioned Fourth celebration.
