  1. Your a nit picker, can't say anything nice about this persons work. I for one am very impressed with this guy's work. I would like to see one that starts in River Oaks and flies south down Kirby all the way to S. Main St., then head out toward the old South Main Drive In. That was on the corner of Stella Link and Main.
  2. Still alive & kickin. I would guess the indexing is off since it was drooped.
  3. Did this guy have any of his designed homes along the North or South side of North & South Brazewood? Seems I remember many of his designs along there when I was growing up in that part of town in the 50s/60s.
  4. Astroworld should have teamed up with Johnson space center. Have some Space exabitions in the Park may have lasted way longer.
  5. Don't drink coffee, hate the taste of it plane but I do like it in cake and ice cream.
  6. Does anyone remember this restaurant chain? Does anyone on here know its history?
  7. When I was a kid going to Longfellow Elm. in the 1960s my mother was into refinishing old furniture and making things like waterfalls out of junk, then dragging them to junk shops and reselling them. One of her/our favorite junk shops was a place on lower Westiemier by the name of Trash & Treasure's. I used to go with her and I would play on the floor among the old stuff. Does this place still exist? Guess I found my love for old stuff from my Mom and old places like this.

  9. So what's the connection with the Dallas stores?
  10. On the intersection of S. Main and O.S.T. there was a Sinclair service station that later became the 1st Antone's, but behind that service station was a Prince's and a Stuart's was across the driveway. But yes that was Stuart's that had those AC tubes. But the 1st to use those tubes was a drive in movie theater.
  11. This may help store was on the South west corner of Belaire blvd. and Rampart just down the street form the 24 hour 7-11 I worked at. on the south east corner of Belaire Blvd. and Renwick Dr.
  12. In the 1970s there was a record shop on the corner of Belaire Blvd. and & Renwick that sold English imports, I bought many there. Does anyone remember this place? Maybe the name of the store?
  13. I grew up in Houston right behind these properties, these properties were on the corner of South Main St. & Broadmead . I noticed on Google earth last August that the motel was being torn down. I was wondering if any of you know what they plan on building on those properties? TIA
  14. I used to play at a place on the corner of S. Main and North Braceswood it had a driving range next door that was next to the Kiddie Wonderland. For 2 summers I worked for Kiddie Wonderland. I played at that miniature golf course up thru high school in 1968.
  15. How about downtown out over 290 to highway 6. Or how about fly down hwy 6 from I10 to 290.
  16. Where exactly is Highland Village in Houston? I know where Highland Village is in Dallas, but am confused to where Highland Village is in Houston. Is it on Westheimer east of the railroad tracks that are east of 610?
  17. I grew up in Houston but moved away in 1979 for work, my mother wanted to move back because her only granddaughter lived there and wanted her to move there so she could see her more than she did when she lived in a neighboring state. So we moved to and bought a house in Copperfield that was close to her. While we were there we got a flyer from Fiesta saying their grand opening maybe it said reopening it Was almost 20 years ago, but I was impressed with the store and ending up shopping there quit often. I was just curious if was still opened I live in the DFW area now and have seen several Fiesta stores close or move and was just wondering.
  18. I thought this was a discussion board it was when I joined years ago, but I guess I was wrong. Not being mean and all.
  19. In 1999 not long after I moved to Houston Fiesta opened a Super Fiesta just across the road to Willow brook Mall is it still there?
  20. I lived in Houston (CooperField) from 1999-2001 and I used to love going to an all you can eat Japanese Sushi restaurant on 1960 at the entrance to Willowbrook Mall. I can't remember the name of it. I was wondering if 's still there? Lots of happy memories.
  21. The original Antone's was on the corner of S. Main and OST in the old Sinclair service station back in the 60s I used to ride my bike up there and buy sandwiches for the family.
  22. When growing up in Houston my best friend's dad owned The Spanish Village Mexican Restaurant on Almeda Rd. that's been there forever. They also had one on OST at South Main. When I was 12 years old I worked there making Praline candy in the back of the restaurant overlooking a go cart track. His dad's name was Larry Pico.
  23. I lived in Houston in 1998-2001 and shopped at the Randall's on Hwy6 and 529 at least twice a week. If Randall's are gone what replaced them?
  24. Foley's were known to repeat themes in their stores so there is a chance that Foley's at Northwest Mall also had a ship in their children's shoes department. I have many fond memories of Northwest Mall. I had many jewelry stores I did Accutron repairs for in that mall and I was in that mall twice a week for 4 years (1975 - 1979). I remember the Walgreen's or was it Woolworth's had a restaurant and it was a great place for my wife and kids to hang out while I was busy picking up and delivering my work. The restaurant had 24/7 breakfast menu & they had great breakfast foods.
  25. Does anyone on here know the history of this place or stores? I remember they had a 2 story store in the Village on University Blvd. and a shop in the strip center at the corner of Holcomb and Greenbriar my mom worked in that shop in the mid to late 50s.
