Description: Two photographs of the Golden Jubilee Celebration of 1948 in Port Arthur, TX, pasted back-to-back. The front photograph depicts a large group of people seated on a wooden pier on the left side of the photo. This pier is on Rue de Soldats Drive parallel to the waterway. Several boats are in the water, racing past the group of spectators. The photograph on the back is photographed from a high vantage overlooking the Rue de Soldats Drive with a number of automobiles and people in the foreground. A line of spectators runs diagonally into the background from the right foreground and disappears in the distance. The storm levee and Pleasure Island are visible across the waterway.
