see the mouth painted around the tunnel???

This was where Good-Latimer expressway went under another street east of downtown over by Deep Ellum. This whole area is being re-configured to allow for the light-rail system to tunnel through. Though dated and fading, the art works on this passage are kind of sad to lose, but that's progress, isn't it?

Zoot Suits 'R' Us

This is the best place in town to find a Zoot Suit. Cool, flamboyant gear.

George M. Dallas

No, that's not Marlon Brando.

A Senator from Pennsylvania and the 11th US Vice President (under James Polk), George Mifflin Dallas (1792-1864) is thought to have been the namesake of Dallas. He served as Senator for 15 months, and declined to run for re-election. I think more US Senators should follow his example- this is a namesake to be proud of.

All the stormy weather lately has made for some beautiful clouds. This photo was taken early evening on May 10.

Hotel Intercontinental

So luxe.

So moderne.

Sitting empty, more's the pity since this is such a fabulous piece of architecture. Great care was taken with every aspect of this structure. I hope some savvy developer will restore this structure to its former glory - this would be a swell luxury apartment building.

Terrazzo Leaves from the 1950s

These leaves appear at the four corners of the block where a mid-century modern parking garage sits at the confluence of Ervay Commerce and Main Streets. Never saw these before last week, even after all these years. Loved it.

I'll post an image of the garage soon, I promise.
