“Saved from obscurity, these priceless treasures from the past bring history to life once more”

Within a technology-crazed world, not everything that is fast and sleek is better. For those who believe that a ‘blast from the past’ is preferable to today’s pre-fab world, then this video from National Geographic is the one to see.

Watch as skilled hands restore priceless relics to their original splendour. Everything from a WWI bi-plane, to a Colorado turn-of-the-century carousel made in 1905 return to their glorious beginnings in this educational documentary.

  • A modern-day pilot in rural Virginia stitches Irish linen on the wings of one of four existing World War I ‘Jennys’
  • In Auburn, Indiana, Duesenberg automobiles from the 1920s are known as ‘rolling sculptures’ and are restored with love
  • Craftsmen meticulously repair the famous Catherine’s Palace in Leningrad, Russia, destroyed by Nazi Germany
  • In Burlington (Colorado), a carousel originally built in 1905 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and known as ‘PTC #6’, but more recently used for grain storage, is saved
  • Tall ship ‘Elissa’, launched in 1877 in Scotland, sails again with help from volunteers in Texas and becomes the Official Tall Ship of Texas.

These well-told stories explain why each relic is so treasured. Produced in 1987, Treasures from the Past will interest collectors and wannabes alike. Anyone remotely intrigued with preservation will enjoy seeing how individuals work to re-create these relics - projects that many might believe are impossible.

Saved from obscurity, these priceless Treasures From The Past bring history to life once more.
