  1. If anyone is interested, Annunciation Catholic Church is having an architecture lecture series on Nicholas Clayton. Sponsored by Ziegler-Cooper. Speakers include Stephen Fox and Duncan Stroik. September 6-9th, dowtown Houston. Register at: http://www.bit.ly/AnnunciationSymposium Architectural Symposium Registration Booklet compressed.pdf
  2. I found a seller on a buy/sell sight & a lady was selling some families photos she'd retrieved from a storage unit she'd purchased. She wanted $100. I was a little off put. I messaged, asked about any identifiers. She sent me enough that I could find the family. She gave me permission. I found a likely candidate on my genealogy site within minutes. Messaged & waited. It was his grandmother who he'd had no photos of. He was not upset about his pictures being put on the market. Said he'd gladly pay her & considered her a rescuer. He got all the pictures, her wedding gown & a train set he played with as a child. Movie theater photo is from 1940 announcing Tex Ritter Live.
  3. My wife and I are opening a workshop that will specialize in building furniture incorporating salvaged architectural elements sourced from New Orleans. We are also planning to have a stock of these salvaged pieces to offer on a custom design basis for clients. Planning to offer vintage window and door repair and construction as well. We are interested in what the readers of this forum have to say about this and welcome any suggestions. Thanks!!!

  5. Hey guys, Im kinda new to this forum page but I recently took these photos in the East End of Houston. These are pictures from an abandoned foundry called Skyvana Foundry I have yet to have any info about the foundry. I took these with my phone so bare the quality. I hope to go back and take some more pictures. not sure why this came out sideways?
  6. I was hoping someone who knows the older parts of Houston (such as Heights, River Oaks) could shed some light on something for me. I hunt for abandoned roads and old right-of-ways in the primarily west side of Houston, and I recently took notice of one on North Shepherd Dr. between 34th and 38th St., near the Garden Oaks Theater. On either side of the North Shepherd main drag where the underpass goes beneath the railroad corridor, there are two old right-of-ways surrounding the main road at ground level. These old right of ways have been closed off for a long time, but they are very unusual. Even the oldest aerial imagery I could find shows both the main lanes of North Shepherd, and the little side street up at ground level. Were the two built in conjunction? Or did the outer roads pre-date the current right of way that dips below the railroad? I would love to learn more about this bizarre configuration.
  7. Found this in swamplot this morning This is a very nice old building. Don't really know if condo's are best in hurricane prone areas though. http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2014/06/historic-galveston-building-goes-condo/#24138101=0
  8. Hello, I am currently conducting a small project that involves capturing black & white photos of Houston's historic buildings. I am specifically looking for buildings from the the earliest 1800's to the early 1900's. I have a good collection going and looking for suggestions on other interesting buildings for the collection. Here is a link to the portfolio (work in progress): http://stuartpartridge.smugmug.com/Historic-Houston-BW All the best, Stuart
  9. this picture is being discussed on a Houston facebook page (from Traces of Texas website). Anyone have any idea? It is labeled as an undated house is houston. Obviously looks like some sort of rooming or boarding house?
