  1. I believe you're getting your Sam's mixed up, the dealership at Gessner and 59 (actually the main showroom was on Beechnut ) was Sam White Olds.
  2. A better comparison would be the Azalea motel in the 7100 block of N.Shepherd at Millville street.
  3. This building and the one behind it appear to be part of an old "Motor Court" motel, the type you would find in many small towns in the 50s and 60s.
  4. In the 70s the dealership on S.Post Oak was called Westbury Yamaha, it occupied the old post office building when the post office moved to a new facility on Belrose at Atwell.
  5. I saw this on HAR.com a single family mod that looks like a duplex with a 1 car garage and driveway at each end of the home. http://search.har.com/engine/5702-Warm-Springs-Rd-Houston-TX-77035_HAR97028417.htm
  6. Here's one of several videos on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fVFiZk9wFc
  7. I think it was mentioned here before as being a Big-K (K-mart).
  8. The Name of the club came from the street address where it was located 804 Chelsea (between Milam & Travis).

Anyway, to answer your question. Luke Johnson Ford was on the SW Frwy,nothbound between Hillcroft and the Westpark curve.It was later known as Westway Ford and is currently Sterling McCall Ford.
  10. I read this when it was first posted and it didn't stir up any memories.So I googled it and found a site for a gingerbread themed house in the town of Westbury on the Island of Tasmania just off the southeast coast of Australia.Just a coincidence I guess.So end of story........ And then a couple of days ago I was talking with one of my sisters who mentioned how back in the early 70s she and her friends had rode their bikes over near Westbury Square to look at the Gingerbread Houses. So they did exist at one time but that was nearly 50 years ago.The homes are still there but the molding and tr
  11. If you do a Wikipedia search for Alief,Houston, the 1st photo you'll see is of the Alief SA & AP depot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alief,_Houston
  12. I'm guessing it's the part of telephone road thats just south of Hobby airport and north of Braniff St.
  13. It was an old gas station possibly Exxon,the type that had a couple of bays for auto repair.

I believe it was just a driving range and it didn't last very long. MeyerPark driving range.Also before they built the MeyerPark shopping center where Randall's and Blockbuster Video are, it was an open field where a couple of old guys sold dirt,sand and top soil out of an old wooden shack. Where the Krogers Sou
  15. I checked it out at about 6:30 pm Friday evening and the changeover is beginning.They're playing constuction sounds while occasionally breaking in to say where to find the missing gospel music and that the change to a news talk station was underway.
