This 1950s home movie captures an unknown Texas family at home and on vacation around the state. At home, members of the family pose for the camera, showing off outfits and playing with the family dog and cat. Later, the family embarks on a road trip to Ruidoso, New Mexico, in 1952, where they visit Lincoln National Forest and Monjeau Fire Lookout. The following summer, the family travels to San Antonio, with stops at the Alamo and the zoo. Next, they visit Austin, touring the State Capitol Building and the University of Texas campus. Later, the family tours Galveston, visiting Bishop’s Palace, Moody Mansion, and the El Mina Shriners Temple as well as clocking in some time on the beach. These films are part of the collection courtesy of native Galvestonian and current Austin resident Richard Eisenhour, who discovered and bought them on Ebay.
