The late Bill Hunziker, son of ferry boat Captain Stanley Hunziker,  gave this presentation in May 2003 at a meeting of the South Whidbey Historical Society’s “Then and Now” series. This is Part I.

 

In 1935, 13-year old Bill Hunziker and his family went on a Whidbey Island road trip, the first of several spanning the years 1935 to 1939. He brought along his new birthday gift: a 16 mm movie camera that shot using Kodacolor film.  (BTW, in 1935, the Island was spelled Whidby.)
