Bryan Place Tower, as seen from a vehicle on I-45 (Texas Highway 75)(northbound Central Expressway)

Update: When I posted this photo earlier, I listed this highway as I-35, but Abraham Lincoln was so kind as to correct me. You should check out his excellent blog! My bad. It's funny that all these many years Central Expressway has been called 75 and I never made the leap to realize 75 was a state highway, not an Interstate. Silly me. I stand corrected. Thanks, Abraham!

When I saw your comment about I-75 I wondered how that was possible since I-75 runs from Maine to Sarasota or Ft Myers, Florida. I suppose Dallas can call their streets anything they want to call them but that was my first reaction. The last time I was in Dallas was in a car that took about 20 minutes or longer to get there from Fort Worth and we were out in the country (so to speak) for a while before coming back into Dallas. That was back in 1951 or 1952. Were you born then?

Thanks so much, abraham. Silly me. I've corrected myself in the text of the post and given credit where due.

I moved to Dallas in 1979 with my family, when I was about 13. :)

Wow. Thank you for your kindness. Sometimes I hesitate to leave any kind of correction because it will upset people. I assumed, however, that there could be an I-75 just as a kind of bypass in your city. Thanks too for the note about me and my blog. I didn't expect it but certainly appreciate it as well as your visit.

Thanks again.

You are most welcome, and thank YOU, Abraham! I know what you mean about correcting people. Someone has another daily blog about Dallas that is quite good, but they are directionally challenged and mis-identify the region of Dallas a photo is taken in. I finally broke down and sent them a comment. Never heard from them, though. Don't know what they thought about my helpful hint. I decided just to stay away and not be bothered by it. And you're welcome for the mention!

I don't know how you did it but that bleached out colour gives the photo a fifties feel even though the building is modern. Interesting.
