Campus tour film, 1930s

I can't watch this without imagining Mystery Science Theater-style voice overs. Also, great footage of the old MichCon Manufactured Gas Plant behind the old train station at 0:35. It's strange seeing such large heavy industrial structures so close to downtown. As an aside, the site of that plant is scheduled for cleanup this August. There is a proposal to make it a park.
