This home movie, filmed by San Antonio resident Wade R. Bedell, Sr., documents the city circa 1960. Footage includes the kiddie train at Brackenridge Park, the downtown skyline from a moving car, and the Pearl Brewery and distribution trucks practicing parking maneuvers. Mr. Bedell made these films to publicize his business, Bedell Trailer Company, which was located at on S. Flores St. in San Antonio. 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 2012. The cameraman photographer is the late Wade R. Bedell, Sr. (c. 1896 - c. 1972) of San Antonio, who possibly ran a trucking and distribution company in San Antonio. His name and address appear on many of the lot's film boxes.
