Alabama at Shepherd Strip Center in Historic Houston Posted January 10, 2019 On 1/2/2019 at 4:30 PM, 57Tbird said: I also went to Poe, Lanier, and Lamar (1953). I lived in Southampton near Rice U, I rode my bike on Shepherd to the Alabama for the Saturday morning kids' movies... usually a cartoon or two, a comedy, and a western (Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, etc.). After the show I would go to Chris' Coney Island on the SW corner of Shepherd and Alabama and have a couple of hot dogs @ 2/$.25, and then play the nickel pin ball machine there. Often went with my cousin who lived in the 2000 block of Sul Ross. This was the late '40's. Good times! Parents didn't worry about their children as much back then. You were a few years before me. I graduated in 63. I have to agree with you those were some really great years to have lived in the area. I had friends that also lived in the Southhampton area. I had a cousin that lived on Wroxton Rd and a couple of other friends that lived on the same street. Had a good friend that lived at 2224 Albans and several more scattered through the neighborhood. I sometime wish I could go back to those days.
