  1. Where was this Globe store in the picture located?
  2. That building looks like the one on Harrisburg in Eastwood next to the Park. If this is the same building it is still there and I want to say it was built in the 1920's. https://www.google.com/maps/@29.7423592,-95.3240863,3a,41.5y,193.15h,97.81t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s_sPnptMmse7QbShJGOhQFw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  3. He must have been more than a title title abstractor for him to get a whole park named after him. I'm wondering now, maybe he contributed to his community some how or something.
  4. Who was Alvin S. Moody and why was he important? When I look online all it says is that he was a Democratic Politician from the 1920's and nothing more. He must have been of significant importance if he had a Park named after him. I would like to know a little more about him than just that. If you could please share some information on him. Thank you.
  5. Does anyone remember the address of the original Tommy Vaughn on N. Main in the early 50's?
  6. There use to be an old corner store on the corner of 16th St. and Rutland. it was there in the 60's for srue up until the early to mid 80's. Does anyone remember the name of it? https://www.google.com/maps/@29.7997751,-95.4013851,3a,41y,219.03h,100.21t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1s9jE2WKv4b7KfPEj_G9FTxg!2e0!5s20071101T000000!7i3328!8i1664
  7. I found an old 1927 copy of the Houston Electric Company streetcar map. It shows streetcar route number 4 as the Studewood. It shows it going past 27th Street then truing back around on what looks like 29th or 30th Street. I'm guessing if you were going to Independence Heights or Acres Homes in those times that was the only route..
  8. That is the best explanation so far. Thank you.
  9. Was there a gang out there during that time named "Blue Devils" or Blue Devilz"? Where there any kind of Cholo type gangs?
  10. It was because of the 8 Ball Posse Gang in that area. Other gangs in that area around that time were known as follows: * Puro Heights * Sunset Heights * 6 1/2 Street * Bad Company Posse (BCP) * The Eight Ball Posse * Woodland Heights Just to name a few.
  11. Check this out: 7th Ward East Side Houston Texas ? ? - YouTube I've reached out to some people out in the streets but haven't gotten an answer about the 8th Ward. More than likely it was made up just like the 7th Ward was.
  12. Hi Guys, I was wonder about the history of the old Parkview drug store on the corner of Harrisburg Blvd. and 75th Street. And maybe some possible pictures of the old place if they exists. I know I came to the right place, you guys never let me down.

  14. Found this gem in the Houston Public Library Archives but still no Orlando's.
  15. I'm so sick of cookie cutter town homes. I wish it would stop already. Just out of curiosity, when did Luck 7 go out of business? I can't find anything online about them.
  16. I love the Google time line too bad it only goes back to 2007. Man Taft has changed a lot since I've visited it, use to go have pizza at the Midnight Pie.
  17. Found this on Google maps from a store in Houston not sure if it s the same company.
  18. That's awesome IronTiger, do you recall what paper? Was it the Houston Press, Post or Chronicle?
  19. Never tried the links but there hamburgers are very good..
  20. Does anyone on here know the history of Orlando Supermarket located on 6806 W Montgomery Rd, Houston, TX 77091? All I've found is that Marvin Zhindler did a report on it way back in the days because of the R and the D being blown off by a storm and not being replaced the store has since changed owners and has been known as O-Lan-O ever since. It would be even cooler if some one had old photos of it. I do remember as a kid back in the 80's Orlando ads in the news paper. but it's been a long time.
  21. Thanks Ross. You guys are the best of the best.
  22. Update: People on Facebook are now saying that the actual location was across the street on 4409 Canal St. in a similar building and may have been called Cars or Carl's Tatste Foods.
