Description: This photograph shows the Harvard Radio Astronomy Station. To the left, there is a white building that appears to be a pre-fabricated structure; an old-fashioned pickup truck is parked next to the building. To the right, there is a large satellite propped up on what appears to be wooden supports. Two men are standing next to the satellite. In the foreground, there is some scrub and a wire fence enclosing the station area. Behind the station, there are telephone poles and rolling hills with scattered brush. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads "Big Bend Sentinel, Marfa, Texas. 4 col x 4 flush mounted 175 cropped."

[Pampa, Texas: "Hang your hat at the top of Texas!"]

Date: unknown
Creator: unknown
Description: This film is unedited television footage regarding events and sites in Pampa, Texas. The footage includes photos of Woody Guthrie, panoramas of the local landscape, recreational areas, a cowboy reciting lines to the camera, and a cook-out at a ranch house. First, the camera crew films old photographs of Woody Guthrie and Harris Drugs at a local museum. Then footage of park, residential, and ranch lands is shot. At a park, groups of people have a picnic, and children play soccer and on swingsets. Two women birdwatch and walk along a forest trail. In a suburban neighborhood, filming covers a couple walking a dog, a postwoman delivering mail, and the exterior of a Presbyterian church. Men are filmed at a golf course on a driving range, using golf carts, and putting. Panoramic footage of open plains includes cattle, a wheat field, and an overcast sky. A cowboy on horseback delivers multiple takes of the phrases: “While you visit, hang your hat at the top of Texas,” and “Pampa, the real Texas.” Last, the camera crew films a group of people cooking and eating outdoors near a covered wagon, at a ranch house.
