Taiwan videos from the 40s-60s

Huge site of videos from the past, with many videos from Taiwan of the 40s, 50s and 60s.

Thanks to the commenter who left this. Wonderful stuff!

Some of the videos are from the 30s, like some of the (mismarked) Japanese footage, which I've actually seen before on a DVD I bought from Eslite. I think it was published by one of Taiwan's history museums (for a lot less than the prices this site is asking for).

Yes, it seems that videos of Taiwan marked "1950" are really from the Japanese imperial era, and most likely 1935-1940. For example, shops and buildings display both Chinese characters and the katakana script. Very interesting stuff!
