  1. A rooftop view of Rice University from the east looking west. These photos were taken Oct 30, 2006.
  2. I'll have to verify it, but I think the street labeled M.D. Anderson Blvd has signs saying John Freeman Blvd. I have photos in the other direction also, facing Rice U. I'll post them in a different topic although they are related in that I was on the same roof.
  3. Yes, the West Pavilion Center. Here's a link: http://seattle.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...19/daily45.html
  4. Thanks for the link and compliment, 57Tbird. Creating smaller pics and adding links takes a few extra steps. This is one building (The Lamar Hotel) that I wished was saved. Houston lost a treasure when it was demolished.
  5. I purchased both of these photos along with others back in the early 1980s. I still possess the photographs which are 12x10 photo-glossies. The store from which I purchased them was an antique store that had many old photos. The information came with the photos.
  6. It's interesting how many pics throughout the years were taken of the Metropolitan Theatre on Main St. at this angle. This one is from 1941. The photos you're looking at have been greatly reduced. Click on the link below for the high resolution photo (not the photo itself): http://i10.tinypic.com/2d0xd1h.jpg Houston Skyline facing the Chronicle Building. I wonder where the 1913 red light district mentioned in an older thread is? Again, click on the link below for the high resolution photo: http://i10.tinypic.com/48xsnes.jpg
  7. Here's a pic I dug up of Robert E. Lee High School in the early 1980s. It's all I have:
  8. If you're referring to the pool at the Marriott, yea - most people don't know it exists. Note: Photo was shot through a window. Some reflection can be seen on the left.
  9. We need more people like your Aunt. I'm sure she was a role model to many.
  10. I always enjoy reading your personal insights and experiences, WestUNative, you're an asset to the HAIF forums.
  11. I was wrong. Red Scare and Urbanerd are correct. The Houston Pavillions is further east. The Skyscraper forum gives the following location: Bounded by Dallas st., Polk st., Main st. and Caroline st. Reference: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=106887
  12. Yes. And as you can see, nothing has been started yet.
  13. Some photos I took Oct 5, 2006 during my lunch hour of the surrounding area from atop the Travis Garage. Part 2 of 2:
