    This home movie, filmed by an unknown Galveston family, captures their travels to Little Rock, Chicago, and Baltimore. Back home on the island they catch an impromptu football game on East 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 in 2011. The family in the film and the person who shot the footage are unknown, but they are mainly shot in-and-around Galveston.
