A historic film collector's YouTube video was trending on social media on Friday.
The film which lasts more than a minute outlines the Main Street of Stawell.
The 9.5mm home movie was shot by an unknown cameraman but digitalised by Mike Trickett and placed onto his YouTube channel.
Mr Trickett, of Geelong, has collected many films for about 50 years from auctions, deceased estates, and the like.
"Quite honestly I can't remember where I picked up this film from," he said.
"It's only a small bit of film and I suspect it was in with one of the many collections I have bought over the years.

"Since I've retired I've started to go through these collections and work out what's what."
Mr Trickett said his intention is to pass all the films he has onto the National Sound and Film archive once he finishes cataloging the films.
"I have about 3000-4000 films in my collection," he said.
"A lot of those films are entertainment pieces not documentaries like Stawell's.
"Something like the Stawell film is very rare and very unique."
Mr Trickett said he uploaded the video more than 12 months ago and sent a copy to the Stawell Historical Society.
The video has had almost 1000 views.
