HemisFair '68

Photo by K.D. Jones. HemisFair '68, San Antonio.

Among the black and white photos taken by my Dad in the summer of 1968 were several from the HemisFair in San Antonio. Some show the Riverwalk and HemisFair Arena. Another photo captures the Migration Fountain at the United States Pavilion, created by artist Bill Bristow for the HemisFair.

Perhaps these were captured on a single day in the summer of 1968. More about the HemisFair can be read online at the Texas State Historical Association's page.
