Description

This home movie documents the daily lives and activities of the Peter Pauls Stewart family including holidays, birthdays, and vacations during the period of 1956 through 1957. The footage begins with a trip to Disneyland (00:00-02:03) followed by Washington, D.C. (02:03-11:59). In Washington, D.C., the family watches a military parade led by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Vice President Richard Nixon. The parade includes footage of the MIM-3 Nike Ajax (06:01), Martin MGM Matador (06:39), Hughes AIM-4 Falcon (06:43), the Lockheed Starfighter (06;47), tanks (09:37), and the PGM-11 Redstone Missile (09:49). Back at home in Dallas, the family celebrates Easter (11:59-13:59), Thanksgiving (15:59-21:50), and Christmas (21:50-23:49). Also included is aerial footage, shot from a Helix helicopter that includes road construction (23:49-24:48) and underexposed night aerial footage (23:49-25:36). Community input suggests that this aerial footage shows the construction of the Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike (now I-30) as the helicopter flies into downtown Fort Worth. Community input also suggests that the helicopter lands on a helipad near the Texas and Pacific (T&P) Station and the Williamson-Dickie Company building close to the intersection of Vickery Boulevard and Jennings Avenue. Additional footage at home includes Elizabeth and her brother (25:36-25:47), Christmas (25:47-27:45), Elizabeth’s third birthday (27:45-29:45), and a small child learning to walk (29:45-29:56). The family then travels by airplane to Mexico where they visit a railroad station, La Terminal Del Valle De Mexico, and swim at a resort pool (29:56-39:41). Back at home the family celebrates David's birthday (39:41-40:45), swims (40:45-42:34), and plays outdoors (43:03-43:40). The family then travels to a coastal location where they swim in a hotel pool and play on the beach (43:40-45:40). The family then visits a small airport where the children are allowed in the cockpit (45:40-47:12). The film ends with the family swimming (47:12-47:43).
