    This compilation reel from 1956 highlights scenes from a variety of rural and coastal locations in Texas. Featured are the Wharton County Youth Fair and Rodeo, Matagorda County's First Bale of Cotton auction, the Freeport Shrimp Fiesta, and construction at Huntsville State Park. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
