Henry Fletcher was kind enough to bring his 70-year-old film projector to the museum on April 17, 2015. It still pretty much works. We transferred two old 16-mm films of Gulf High football from 1975 and 1976 to video.
Written on the back of the top photo is “1927” and the license plate seems to read 1927, so the photo appears to be the brand-new Hacienda Hotel in 1927. Thanks Dorothy Cleaves and Nadine Robbins for the photo. The bottom photo was taken in 2015. This is the north side of the Hacienda, and plans are to restore it to its original appearance.
