Historical downtown Longview is going viral in an online video posted a few months ago and rediscovered this past week, giving thousands of people a fresh look at the city from 1939 to 1944.

The 10-minute video, titled “1939 Downtown Longview, Texas,” first came to light nearly a year ago when its owner, Longview native Thomas W. (Tommy) Lawrence, offered public screenings of a digitized version of the 16-millimeter films shot by his father, Holly M. Lawrence Jr.
