This video was shot during the Dallas Flood in April 1957 in and around Dallas Texas. It shows Riverlake Country Club in Dallas Tx and the Dallas Area. I find this funny because when I was a kid I played the golf course that some of the footage shows. I can relate to this footage because it was wet than too!

Found Film: Dallas Love Field Airport 1963

The film starts from the parking lot with a clear view of the sign reading “Dallas Love Field”.  The film begins again on the inside of the airport watching aircraft getting ready to taxi or take off.  I can not make out the first company, but the second is American Airlines.  It may be Braniff as their building is seen later as an airplane takes off from the runway.   As one the plane stops, all the luggage handlers and gas trucks converge as well as the outside passenger staircase.  Air traffic control tower is next.  There appears to be an outdoor walkway that a man is on.
