….home inspection flashback

Found this intersting old clip from 1944 on a Home Inpection YouTube channel which is very much worth sharing.

“Problems of Housing” is a Encyclopedia Britanica film produced in 1944. It focuses on items like weather control, natural lighting, insect control and safety. Homes in this video range from $200 up to $5000 which are only affordable to the top 10% of citizens back then.
