Rockport Greasy Pole Video

I think two different people sent this in, JP from Rockport and Vicki Gamage.  Not sure if they saw it on the same site or not or if they both just happened to run across it on youtube.  If they saw it someplace on another site let me know and I’ll credit them.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing that. I cant believe there is footage that long ago. I have to think it was a pretty rare thing for someone other than a movie studio to even have some sort of motion picture recorder back then. I dont know.

    Fun to watch, thanks

    Interesting technique huh? I also like the shot of the Headlands in the background. You can certainly tell where it was shot!

  4. I bet many of those “pole crawlers” are Navy guys. They had a big presence in Rockport back in the day.

    It wasn’t another site, Joey. It was GMG. We posted it last NYE here:
