Goodenough Springs, 1941

Goodenough Springs, 1941

One of the side benefits of my dad’s recent retirement (which he didn’t get around to until his 80s) is the discovery of all sorts of things stacked and stuffed in my parents’ basement.

Among the vestiges of the past recently uncovered was this 1941 photo of Goodenough Springs, taken when my grandfather still operated as publisher of The Del Rio News Herald.

Goodenough Springs, for those of you not in the know, is now visited only by the divers of the Goodenough Springs Exploration Project, after a 200 foot descent through the waters of Lake Amistad.

What a difference a dam makes!
