I was blown away this week when I was messing around on Youtube, and stumbled across all this local video from the 1970's.

The Youtube channel belongs to Roland Fields, and he has been uploading news videos from WALA. You can find his youtube channel HERE

I found all of his old news videos either fun, or though-provoking. I am sharing his Mardi Gras videos on this page. If you visit his channel, you'll find other local news stories as well.

Below, watch some of these videos to see how things have changed since the 1970's. It looks like the biggest Mardi Gras crime problem was purse snatchers!
