Transport & exhibits at Golden Gate Exposition

These are wonderful films, and I thank you for making them available. It's unfortunate, though, that they have been transferred - or at least are showing up in the online player - at an incorrect aspect ratio. The 16mm frame's proportions are 1.33 x 1, but the images as seen are about 1.5 x 1. This isn't the result of cropping, but of stretching the image horizontally. This results in buildings not appearing as tall as they should be, people appearing squatter - in other words, the proportions of everything depicted are distorted. Among other things, this compromises the monumental aspect of much of the architecture of the Exposition.
