WPA Film Library Celebrates the End of WW2 - V-J Day
Newly-discovered gem within WPA’s archives: V-J Day celebrations on Hollywood Boulevard - the end of WW2 with the surrender of Japan. This colour footage shows young men and women in the streets and travelling in convertible cars celebrating in the street the end of the war. Military jeeps mixed with soldiers and civilians also pass by as a feeling of jubilation permeates the air while confetti and streamers lay upon the streets.
V-J day happened in the USA on August 14th 1945 and in Europe (due to time differences) on Aug 15th, so this footage is probably from August 14th.
