This intertitled home movie captures scenes of Austin from an airplane in 1963-64 and an unusual snowfall in Austin in 1964. The Galindo family paid $1 to go up in an airplane and fly over Austin. The family took two trips that were filmed in this home movie--one in 1963 and one in 1964. Later scenes include Josephine Galindo and her friends in the family’s backyard throwing snowballs, building a snowman, and sliding down a snowy bluff. Also included are scenes of the Texas State Capitol Grounds in 1963.
