Aldine Mail Route
comstone posted a topic in Historic HoustonI realize stronger forums about Aldine were long addressed, but I hope others can help support a survey for Aldine local culture. A few old YouTube videos <https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=aldine+jail+route>created the meme of "Aldine Jail Route" about 4-3 years ago. I've cycled and walked around the AMR and don't find obvious graffiti/tagging of the "jail route" reference, and I wonder if the motif has died (or others have moved away). One of the musicians also calls Aldine as the "8th Ward" yet I can't find other references. Any discussion, suggestions, are appreciated.
History Of Schools In Aldine ISD
billyf posted a topic in Historic HoustonI grew up in the Aldine area in the Northline Terrace subdivision near Gulf Bank Rd and Sweetwater. I attended Inez Carroll elementary on Raymac Street as well as Aldine High School. Inez Carroll at one time was known as one of the best elementary schools in Texas. I just discovered last week that the old Inez Carroll building was torn down. It appears to have happened about 4 years a go now. It's pretty sad that everything I remember about that school is gone. It got me wondering when the different schools were built and what additions have been added to the schools over the years. Here is what I remember about the school when I first started attending it in 1981. I remember they expanded the library around 1982 (I remember the contruction). I remember in 1st grade they removed the old radiator from the classrooms as they were not used anymore. Looking at different aerials of the school it looks like they added the chiller and cooling tower sometime between 1964 and 1973. I wonder what it was like not having A/C before then. They also added a wing on the back of the school between 1957 and 1964 and added new front and side section to the school between 1964 and 1973 which included expanding the cafeteria. It looks like the gym was added between 1973 and 1981. I remember the walls in the main hallways were redone in the early 80s. They moved the school to Gulf bank between Sweetwater and Airline in the late 90s. Areal of the school in 1957 Areal from 2002 before it was demolished. The front of the school scanned from my class picture. Here is what it looks like now. What I was wondering is when was this school built? I have been told it was built sometime in the early 1950s. If anyone knows the history of any of the schools in the Aldine Independent School District lets discuss it here. I have read the thread about Aldine High School being built on the site of the Gulf Coast Airport after Marrs High School Burnt down on Thanksgiving.

Aldine High School
PBAYS posted a topic in Historic HoustonDoes anyone have a year book for c. 1941 1942? I was the 4 year old mascot for the Aldine High School band in those years. I believe that there was a photograph of me in the year book. I would pay for a copy of a Aldine High School year book with my photo. My sister, Florene Roberts was a member of the band for the same year. Patricia
