Found Film: HemisFair World’s Fair San Antonio, TX 1968

This is 8mm Kodachrome home movie footage from 1968.  The beginning of the film is of the 1968 Hemisfair in San Antonio, Texas.  It shows the monorail and some of the exhibits at the fair.  However, a majority of the film is dedicated to the couple’s three dogs running and playing in the backyard.  The pups get some love from both wife and husband.

I am struck by how much these two people traveled, but they obviously loved being home as well.

How did you digitize this film?

We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.

It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
