Video Capture #1: 600 Block of Mass

I figured out how to capture still images from my clunky PC video editing software. I thought about the picture in my previous post from Google maps and I remembered that my friend Alex and I shot some footage of downtown Lawrence in 1986. Let's compare still images from that videotape with Google map screen shots. Here's the first comparison:
