Why is there no sound on this July 4 Ontario parade video? There's a good reason.

A family friend will be visiting us in July, and I was searching for YouTube videos for her to see. (Her friends visited us one July several years ago, and we took them to KABOOM! in Pomona to see fireworks and a monster truck rally. I don't think they have a lot of monster truck rallies in Europe.)

So anyways, I ran across this video of the Fourth of July parade in Ontario, California. If you view the video, you will notice that it has no sound.

That's because the video was shot in 1956.

Frankly, it doesn't look all that different from today's version of the parade.
