Description:
This compilation of home movies taken by Austinite Ramon Galindo begins in 1957 and spans close to a decade. The bulk of the reel is comprised of Mr. Galindo's documentation of landmarks, and future landmarks under construction, in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. Footage of particular note includes Austin's Hancock Opera House (no longer standing), construction of San Antonio's Hemisfair Park and Tower of the Americas, and a glass elevator ascending the exterior wall of Houston's Warwick Hotel. Also captured are family gatherings, air shows, car and boat races, a magic show or two, an Easter pageant, and a family outing to an event that included a pioneer set-up, a petting zoo, and a visit with Austin's television personality Packer Jack.
