  •  The Volkswagen license plate is one of the 1968 "Hemisfair" plates, issued in conjunction with the San Antonio fair. 
  •  The wind and clouds indicate an approaching tropical storm. Presuming the 1968 date from the license plate is valid, this would be Tropical Storm Candy (June 22 - 26, 1968), which made land on June 24th and tracked northward across eastern Texas. 
  •  Note the plate glass window X'd with masking tape, indicating storm preparations. 
  •  Note extensive defoliation of the trees and shrubbery, indicating the storm has passed.

The materials donated by Richard Workman depict the years when he and his brothers, Gerald Jr. and Sam M. ("Mack"), were growing up in Beeville, TX with their parents Gerald M. and Mary McCarty Workman. The films present everyday play scenes, family gatherings, parties, and trips to Mathis, Corpus Christi, and the San Antonio Zoo. The parade footage comes from different years of the Bee County Rodeo. This later film features home footage from another family (much of it interestingly double-exposed) and clips of bird activity in the neighborhood.
