A Video of LaPorte, Back in 1948!

LaPorte 1948

Thanks to my old classmate and late-in-life St. Thomas High School buddy Vito Schlabra for sending me today’s “local history” subject. It’s a beautiful video jouney for anyone that may have been around here back in the day.  Someone has put together a nice little antique film strip on LaPorte, Texas, circa 1948 or so. Edited with appropriate background music, this show is now playing on You-Tube. The views of the old “Port” movie theatre  on Main Street and “Bob & Marie’s” cafe near Sylvan Beach bring back a lot of memories, even to us Houstonians who only made it over to LaPorte on occasional weekends back in the 1940s and 1950s.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A moving picture with music has to be worth at least 100,000. Enjoy!
