Cause for celebration

Today marks the 65th anniversary of VJ Day in Great Britain (we observe it on Sept. 2 here in the US), and there seems no more apt way to mark the occasion than to try place ourselves in the shoes of all those relieved and grateful souls who rejoiced that day.

So enjoy this remarkable color footage, shot in NYC on August 15, 1945, which is followed by footage of VE Day, shot in England and Europe.
