The video, "Reflections of Dresden", will serve as a rather unique introduction to the nostalgia included with this site. It is an edited version of a DVD that I originally produced as part of an hour-long memorial service presentation for the late Dorothy "Jeanne" (Elgie) Ellis, 1915-2011. While Jeanne married and moved away in the mid 1930's, she retained a strong attachment to her hometown and looked forward to frequent visits with family and friends. So strong was her love for Dresden that her family asked me to pay this special tribute to her at the memorial service and what better way than to take a stroll through the town that Jeanne knew so well in the 1920's and 30's, and to invite her spirit to come along with us. You will have to set aside about 18 minutes to view the complete video.
