Description:
This home movie from Texas oilman E.B. Hopkins captures scenes of a May Day celebration, a family vacation to Niagara Falls, home construction, ships on the Houston Ship Channel, and the family swimming at the beach, likely in Galveston. The home movie begins with scenes of young girls going around a Maypole in the spring dresses, then moves on to scenes of the family's trip to Niagara Falls. Long scenes of home construction in Houston's Chandler Park neighborhood are followed by scenes of the Ship Channel and the beach.
