Vintage SPS Films

View six vintage films made in the Texas Panhandle and Eastern New Mexico made by Southwestern Public Service Company who distributes electrical power throughout the region. The first film dates from 1939 and the last two are from the early 60s.

I received permission from the Research Center at Panhandle-Plains Historical museum to make them available to the general public on YouTube in digital form. SPS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xcel Energy who donated the historic 16mm films to the Research Center.

Learn more about the Research Center at - https://www.panhandleplains.org/p/research/281

These films are brought to you by the CaptiveImage.us Heritage Preservation Project.
