I was working for the Information Services (public information) Office of the City of Corpus Christi, Texas, at the time the Choke Canyon Dam was completed, creating a new water reservoir for the city and surrounding areas. The dedication ceremony for the new dam was held on June 8, 1982, and my job that day was to take lots of pictures - hence the two cameras (one loaded with black-and-white film, one with color slide film) and camera bag with accessories I have around my neck and shoulders. A hat was a necessity that day too, as it was sunny and steamy hot. More about the dam and surrounding recreation areas and the ceremony tomorrow.
