These exciting photos were taken during the 1930s to the 1950s by "Doc" who was a chiropractor, but his passions lay within the camera lens and the images that he captured. Doc was well known and recognized as a photographer in the city, although he did have a degree in chiropractic medicine. The photos have been catalogued into more than 250 categories, since the good doctor would lend his camera, freely, to many of his customers, as long as they brought them back to his studio to have them developed.

  • USS LexingtonUSS Lexington Corpus Christi, Texas
    USS Lexington (CV/CVA/CVS/CVT/AVT-16) is called the "Blue Ghost", and is one of the 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers that was constructed in WWII by the US navy. This carrier is the fifth one to bear the name, which honors the Revolutionary War Battle of Lexington, although it was originally called Cabot, but was renamed during construction to commemorate the fourth Lexington that was lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea in May of 1942. She was commissioned in February 1943 and began serving in the campaigns of the Pacific Theater of Operations that got the Presidential Unit Citation and 11 battle stars for their WWII endeavors. The Lexington was decommissioned after the war, like many of her class ships were, but then she was reactivated after being updated during the early 1950s, and reclassified as an attack carrier (CVA) and then later, an antisubmarine carrier (CVS). The Lexington would become part of the 6th Fleet handling the Atlantic and Mediterranean region and then the 7th Fleet in the Pacific; although the majority of her next 30 years of service would be as a training carrier (CVT) on the east coast. In 1991, the USS Lexington would be decommissioned, having become the longest active Essex class aircraft carrier in the navy, and finally given to Corpus Christi, Texas to become an exciting museum. She was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2003 still is serving her country faithfully in her new role as a floating museum. The hull was laid down in July 1941, in Quincy, Massachusetts, by the Bethlehem Steel Co. and initially called the Cabot, but renamed by June of 1942. One of the reasons that this mighty ship was nicknamed "Blue Ghost", was that she was painted dark blue, and not the usual camouflage, which helped them demoralize the enemy since this heavily defended carrier couldn't be sunk. The Lexington was the last Essex-class carrier that was commissioned and the final wooden flight decked carrier to serve in the navy.

  • Texas State AquariumTexas State Aquarium Corpus Christi, Texas
    The Texas State Aquarium started out in 1969 when the Junior League of Corpus Christi and the community Jaycees joined together to create a coalition that began the Gulf Coast Zoological and Botanical Society that would begin the local community's aquarium. In 1975, some members of the Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni would give their support to the organization; which changed their name to the Corpus Christi Aquarium Association so that the community would feel more inclined to support the new aquarium in 1978. The Junior League donated $50,000 to begin the project in 1979, and during the next few years, the building fund would grow to a staggering $1 million, that was certainly helped by the $350,000 grant the association got from the Earl C. Sams Foundation. In 1984, the Brown Foundation of Houston gave the association a $1.5 million challenge grant and the very next year, the state legislature decided to make the aquarium the "Official Aquarium of Texas". In 1986, the name was changed once more to the Texas State Aquarium Association (TSAA), which bought 6.3 acres on the southern end of the Corpus Christi beach and the city's voters approved a $4.4 million bond issue for the improvement of public properties that encompass the site. Moving along in leaps and bounds, a four part plan was started in 1987, with the city's downtown reinvestment zone donating another $10 million to the fund, as well as a $500,000 investment by the Housing Finance Corporation. Exhibits available at the aquarium include Dolphin Bay, which is a 400,000 gallon tank with three male dolphins and a 70 foot acrylic window; Exhibits available at the aquarium include Dolphin Bay, which is a 400,000 gallon tank with three male dolphins and a 70 foot acrylic window; Swamp Tales alludes to the great success of the conservation efforts of the American alligator and houses Bo, the 10 foot gator, along with 6 various freshwater turtles.

Floating Phantoms displays an 800 gallon tank full of many species, including Pacific sea nettles, Atlantic sea nettles, moon jellies and purple stripe jellies, Eagle Pass opened in 2009 and contains all the raptors with Grace, an American bald eagle being the most regal. In the Flower gardens you will enjoy the 40,000 gallon coral reef that is an exact copy of the reef that sits 300 miles off the shore of the back door, Living Shores houses numerous touching pools that allow you to feel the skins of these wild fish, along with six aquariums and three interactive computer kiosks that will assist you to discover the wild habitats of the Padre Islands and the Laguna Madre. The Islands of Steel houses a 125,000 gallon tank that shows you what the base of an oil rig looks like. The oil companies would dismantle the rigs completely in the past, but now with the new Rigs to Reefs program, the companies leave the platform so that the base can continue being the habitat that grows there. The aquarium is an exciting venue to visit and enjoy for the entire family and will thrill your children all day long.

  • Heritage Park & Cultural Center
    The Cultural center can be found right in the midst of the marvelous and architectural bonanza of Heritage Park that contains 12 Victorian houses, with the center housed in a century old Galvan House. The center has received national attention and awards for their marvelous cultural programs that are held here all during the year, attempting to show the special beauty of the cultural and artistic differences that exist in Corpus Christi, Texas, as well as the rest of the southern region of that great state. The park's oldest house dates back to 1851, and some of the magnificent houses have been made Texas historical landmarks and each one has been restored to its most authentic original condition, with as many artifacts and relics included in the home. At the cultural center, there is a central plaza, courtyard and the Lytton Memorial Rose garden. The Merriman-Bobys house is the second oldest dwelling in the city, and was constructed in 1851 by Walter Merriman, a local land developer and lawyer; and then used in the Civil War as a hospital, and in 1867 to help the people that contracted yellow fever during that terrible epidemic. Almost a third of the city's population , that included the only three doctors, died in that epidemic. The house itself had various owners, that included ranchers wanting a place in the city for their town house, until Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bobys bought it in 1936; inviting the local chapter of the Texas Poetry Society to have their meetings here. Then, Morris Lichenstein purchased the house and would eventually donate it to the city. It is the most unusual of the twelve houses in the park, which was moved from its former location to the park and then renovated; although it is the most typical of the architectural type of that period. There is an open porch and shellcrete fireplace, with native woods and square nails used in its construction. The front entrance has a raised panel door with sidelights and full transom, and has become a restaurant.  Other houses include the Britton-Evans Centennial house that was constructed between 1849 and 1850 by Captain Forbes Britton and his wife; the S. Julius Lichenstein house was built in 1905, by the son of the Lichenstein department store owner which was a big retailer for almost a century. The Simon Gugenheim house was also built during 1905, and donated to the city in 1941. The Galvan house, where the center resides, was constructed in 1908 by A. M. French, and designed by his wife Frances Garrett French, to be enjoyed by family and friends. French was a lawyer by profession, although he was the one to start the First State Bank and surveyor for the Tex-Mex Railroad. He would start the first abstract title company in the city, and after he sold the house in 1942 to Rafael Galvan, it would stay in that family for the next four decades. He had come to the city in 1896, and worked as a fisherman, until becoming the city's first Mexican-American police officer. He started the Galvan Ballroom and was one of the founders of the League of United Latin American Citizens. Next, the Grande-Grossman house that was constructed in 1904, then the Littles-Martin house that was constructed sometime in the early 20th century. There are numerous other houses from that early period in the city, that have been moved to this park, so that all of them may be showcased in one area, thus making it the Heritage Park and Cultural center for all people to come and enjoy looking at what the early 20th century houses looked like.

  • Art Museum of South TexasArt Museum of South Texas Corpus Christi, Texas
    The Art Museum of South Texas was constructed in 1972, with stark white walls made of poured concrete and shell aggregate, and large windows that contains great views of the Corpus Christi, Texas bay's beautiful scenes. The structure was designed by Philip Johnson, and is three levels, but in 2006, another addition was designed by Victor and Ricardo Legorreta of Mexico City, that highlights 13 roof top pyramids, as well as spectacular embellishments of light and color. The idea for the museum began in 1945, when the city turned its centennial museum to a number of local art organizations that continued to preserve and maintain the collections and by the 1960s had such a marvelous and diverse collection that had outgrown its space that the groups and important civic leaders had to start a movement to find money to build a new museum. Since its opening, it has become the cultural center for fine arts in the city, with 12,000 square feet of galleries inside the 30,000 square foot center. The bottom level, that sits at sea level, holds a library, studios, classrooms and storage and work areas. On the main entry level, that faces the Bayfront Arts and Science Park, there is an auditorium, gift shop, galleries and interactive children's playroom. There is a 60 foot catwalk that sits above this level and goes to a sky-lit gallery sitting on the third level. The building is made from concrete and plaster, with floor to ceiling windows to get the optimum light possible. In 1997, the Art museum and the Center for Hispanic Arts joined and formed the South Texas Institute for the Arts, and is affiliated with the Texas A & M university - Corpus Christi. Because of the merger, the outreach programs have been able to be almost doubled, and another half a century of art programming experience brought in to enhance the wonderful opportunities already here. The institute can offer many different exhibitions and educational programs that have come to showcase the wonderful multicultural diversity and heritage of the city and state. They host regular and annual programs that celebrate the achievements of Hispanics and other minority groups, and artists, as well as outreach and enrichment classes the include; dance, video, bilingual gallery talks, theatrical and musical performances and artist residencies. The museum welcomes over 65,000 visitors each year, as well as 35,000 students that partake of the marvelous artistic and educational exhibits and programs. The permanent collection contains over 1300 works of art in the genre of ceramics, mixed media, sculpture, prints, textiles, drawings, paintings and collages.
