  1. I asked my Dad what he remembered about the area then and this is what he said: "In the 70s, the road traveling north and south along what later became the east Beltway access road, had an overpass constructed over Red Bluff Road and one over Pasadena Blvd. I can't recall what the road was referred to before the Beltway name was attached to it. Seems the it had a name that was from the street that it took the place of in the Golden Acres rural residental area. Anyway, Pasadena residents were told that these overpasses would never require a toll. It was not until later in the 70s or early 80s that the second side access road overpasses were constructed, but still no formal construction on what is now the Beltway." Hope this helps
  2. Yes NB, Pasadena is big, of course, not as big as Houston, but big. http://www.ci.pasadena.tx.us/ourcity.htm The paper mill is the predominant smell that actually comes from a plant in Pasadena...all the other big smells you can thank Houston and Deer Park for. But like Midtown Coog said...smells like money to me. Thank god for folks not too proud to work and/or live in the area. Houston would be a cow town still if it were not for the towns off 225.
  3. Brewster McCloud for Govenor! It never hurts to be prepared for the worst, but please, just say no to "premature hurricane panic."
  4. Aug. 2, 2007, 7:40AM City grants protection for the Old 6th Ward District shields historic homes from demolition By CAROLYN FEIBEL Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle The City Council created Houston's first protected historic district Wednesday, shielding more than 200 buildings from demolition in the Old Sixth Ward. Preservationists hailed the 12-1 vote as a new era in Houston's cultural consciousness. The 33-acre protected district contains the highest concentration of historic homes in Houston, many dating back to the late 19th century. The neighborhood has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1978. "We're very happy," said Jane Cahill of the Old Sixth Ward Neighborhood Association. "We were afraid the trend of abolishing the neighborhood's historic construction would continue." Since 1998, 10 historic structures in the Old Sixth Ward have been demolished, 51 inappropriately altered, four relocated, and 12 replaced with new construction incompatible with the neighborhood's character, according to the city's Department of Planning and Development.

  5. That is too bad, because it looks like there are some cats on the rug!
  6. This Sears needs a to go back to the Art Deco style AND bring back the popcorn and icee days!
  7. I was thinking Hofheinz Pavillion for the basketball arena.
  8. Hey, I am pretty new here too. Maybe if you provided your age some of us could help narrow down the possibilities.
  9. Stucco Home is gorgeous BTW. Thanks for the post and info!
  10. The homeowner won't have to worry about the overhang as much as getting all those windows covered and secure from flying debris! But when you can afford to build something like that on the beach, what's a few picture windows?!
  11. Very cool info! I am going to check that out.
  12. Oh yay!! Thanks. I love history and I love big band music! According to my research this band never did record... :closedeyes: but, the fact that there are pics is awesome!
  13. Cool post...must check out this movie. Don't forget about "Reality Bites"

  15. I stumbled across that list doing a google image search the other day. I think I will have to take a trip to the library to see some of those pics!
  16. I totally agree. This is when I was 18, and I am 30 now. I have not had a sticker on since... well I take that back...I did a few years back when those magnets came out that you could take off...but back then my hair was REAL short and a guy was following me around and staring at me. I think he thought I was a boy...ha! So I took that chit off and it has never graced my car since. I figured out I did not have to "label" myself to identify. Your concern is very sweet by the way.
  17. It is just something that I would do for these guys...it certainly would not be a service offered to just any ol boy OK, Musicman got you already, so I will leave this one alone Amen sista
  18. I would swear that my current place of employment is located on the "ugliest street in Houston." It is off of the Hardy Toll Rd between Gulf Bank and Little York...the armpit of Houston...people if you want to adopt a stray dog, this is the place. :closedeyes: , I have to agree with those that said Hardy St. Jensen has some interesting and historic appeal as does Airline...I just can't say those streets are downright ugly.
  19. Wow. How I LOVE this forum! Amazing stuff. Thanks for all the great info...there are some very valuable and resourceful people on this site. Jupiter, can you tell where you are presently residing vs. the old maps?? How cool is that?!
