Mystery Video: August 2014

 

This month’s Mystery Video comes to the Archive from the Ryan-Martin Collection. Shot sometime in the early 1960s, this home movie captures footage of a concert in what is likely San Angelo, Texas. The concert appears to take place upon the opening of a housing development, named Vista or Lake Vista, and many performers take the stage. A handsome young singer, a song-and-dance couple, and guitar-playing sisters all appear in fantastic costumes! Scenes of several performances are included, as well as the singers signing autographs and posing for photos with children. Do you remember this concert? Do you know when and where it took place? Most importantly, do you recognize any of the acts? We would love to identify some of the talent!
