  1. And here's the other side of the brochure. It had some interesting stuff, too.
  2. You're right. I think that is the Southwest Freeway.
  3. Looks like in the bottom photo it's pretty much dead center, just under the word "street" in "South Main Street."
  4. This is from the inside of a brochure touting the then-new Humble Building in 1963. Yep, a few things have changed.
  5. I used to have one of those too. They show up on eBay every now and then.
  6. Welton Beckett was architect for it as well as the Capitol Records building in Hollywood. He had a thing for those sun-shading ledges.
  7. I loved Lew's Record Shop, on the north side of Meyerland. Run by a couple of guys
  8. This is going back a bit, but El Fenix Mexican Restaurant in Bellaire at the circle, and Youngblood's Fried Chicken. Prince's Hamburgers, too.
  9. I was a student at Holy Ghost Catholic School in the mid-1960s and it seems that they too had a F.U.N. team for a while. That was a fine little stadium at the time.
  10. I remember the glass shop, where you could usually watch a glass blower making all manner of fragile things, and Gramophonics, the record store where I bought the Moving Sidewalks' first album, "Flash." A great little record store, run by a guy named Rob Miller, I think. They would sell Fillmore and Avalon concert posters. I still have the tattered remains of one. By the early 1970s, Gramaphonics had moved to the Village in West U. Also, I thought a Pier 1 store was out there. Or am I thinking about Cargo Houston?
