I found some great little historical pics and accompanying information regarding downtown Dallas on this site... Amazing, some of the architecture we used to have.

Here's a composite image of Theater Row that I worked on showing which towers replaced the theaters between Akard and Ervay.

Amazing how we sacrificed the street level for vertical bragging rights.

Nice work. Crazy how the scale changed so drastically on everything.

Here's my original photo, probably from 1945. The streets became one-way after streetcars were removed in the 1960s.

Stunning recreation of Dallas' Union Station in the 1950's. Gold plated No-Prize to whoever can say where this is located.

I'm finding lots of goodies in the archives of The Thanks-Giving Foundation (albums of photos/slides of downtown Dallas in the 1960s-1980s). Digitizing everything will be a big undertaking.

Chapel of Thanksgiving looking from Elm Street, circa 1981.

It's a great photo of the chapel, but I'm a little more interested in the foreground showing construction of 1700 Pacific and that underground cavern that never became a transit tunnel.

Would love to see more.

This building has been known as the Dorsey Building and Aaron Brothers Furs Building at 1000 Commerce. It was demolished in 1979, the same year that the Baker Hotel closed.

Today it's the most valuable McDonald's in Dallas and possibly Texas, sitting on land that's worth almost $1MM more than the building itself.
