  1. Did your parents get married or have a reception there? Happen to have any photos?
  2. Gateway Indoor pool from a 1969 ad:

    Ice Houses

    Oh wow, someone else remembers Bangs! Tell me more. I found an entry on 4504 Richmond in 1957, and one on 4504 Bissonnet in 1964. There were two locations.
  4. Yep, Tingles was the bar inside the hotel.
  5. We've been going to Little Pappasitos since the early 90's. That may have been right around they opened, but not sure.
  6. Ditto. It was a field before it was Auchan's. The beltway right there was Roark Rd then. Just a two-lane blacktop. The buildings and apartments on the other side of the beltway were there much longer.
  7. Thanks for the link! I've always said it would make a great greenspace if it can't be saved. Checking out the link I saw this comment: Brilliant! That would be really cool, if technically feasable.
  8. Yep, that photo is sweet. Thanks for posting. One of the better ones I've seen aside from the one in the Chronical article.
  9. What happened to Sparky? Is she still around? Did you have trouble attaching your photo? Was it the same one Sparkey posted a while back?
  10. Is the map you're looking at available online?
  11. Toddle Houses in 1973. Thought there would have been more than that at that time, but this is all I found in the directory. 701 Elgin 4321 Montrose 3330 Richmond 9101 Main At the same time, there were the following Dobb's Houses: 2800 Terminal Rd - A & B 3515 Westheimer 4908 San Felipe 4802 Richmond 8611 Memorial Dr 4331 Old Spanish Trail 2319 W Holcombe 7895 Hillcroft 4005 N Braeswood 7905 Long Point
  12. Is this the location? Perhaps the original image is still under there. Summit Flooring sign
  13. What I find offensive are posts that contribute absolutely nothing to the topic, but instead, are offered merely to ridicule others. Sef: sorry, I didn't see the little "report" button that was right in front of me.
  14. Can't one of the admins just delete posts like this?! Or better yet, the entire account...
  15. Yep, will do. Btw, a thought occurred to me. Let's put your museum in the dome. We can kill 2 birds with one stone here! (or 2 birds with 1 Sloane, haha!) The exhibitions go on the outside edge where the stadium seating is now, leaving an atrium in the middle (somewhat smaller than the current "field"). In the atrium we put some unique attraction; a diorama of the city, giant sculpture, carousel, etc. Can we still find the dismantled Texas Cyclone??! Was it demolished?? Now that's a tourist attraction.
  16. My vote would be to trash the dome and save the movie theaters. I personally don't favor saving the dome at all. It just so... big. And doesn't have quite the impace it once did when it was all alone out there. And the maintenance...
  17. Well I haven't seen her public safety commercial so I'll have to withhold an opinion on that until I do since the biography on her web site is at odds with that statement.
  18. And, apparently, she is FOR museums. Her biography states she is on the Board of Directors of the Holocaust Museum Houston. And also, "Annise is also involved in historic preservation efforts in Houston and has received the “Good Brick Award ” from the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance for her restoration of historic properties in the Old Sixth Ward." Better than a sharp stick in the eye....
  19. This almost sounds like a physical extension of the Museum of Houston.org site. So has there been anything going on lately?
  20. What does this thread have to do with the Historic Houston Forum???
  21. Thanks for the heads up! Looks interesting.
  22. Great to hear from you DMANGRIFF. Where in Fort Bend county did the demo guy live? Do you know of the other indian would be visible on their property?
  23. I believe those hills are the site of an apartment complex or townhomes today. Right on the bayou very near Beltway 8 between Beechnut and Bissonnett now? Those hills were actually a little closer to Beechnut & Roark intersection than Bissonnet & Roark. Do I have the right ones?
