The city of Dallas provides a wealth of public services, ranging from recreation and education, to ensuring the safety of its citizens. This 1950s compilation film from the City of Dallas Municipal Archives provides a look at many of these services, including the Dallas Public Library system and original building, an inside look at historic WRR-FM public radio station, footage of several city parks, the Dallas Zoo, the Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural History, the Dallas Aquarium, and Love Field Airport.
