  1. Cool when my family moved to Houston in 1962, we stayed at the Las Vegas Inn.
  2. I was browsing the Southwestern Times magazine dated August 21, 1947 and noticed this business listing for Bert Wheeler's Liquors At 8380 South Main St. Bert Wheeler's Bargain Beverage House 8380 South Main at Intersection With O.S.T. - 2 Blocks Past Prince's Drive-In. I heard Bert Wheeler owned a lot of land near the Astrodome/South Main/Meyerland area. He used to have a club at his mansion, I think.
  3. Hello I'm new here and appreciate any help I can get with my inquiry. I own this vintage neon star sign. I was told it was erected in 1952 at the top of the Bert Wheeler's sign at the Harrisburg location. It's 7' tall 4' wide and 25" deep. Porcelain orange & white behind neon tubes. I'm looking for any pictures to prove what I was told about it or any information someone may have. Thank you.
  4. Does any one know/remember the name of the private club that used to be on Buffalo Speedway north of S.Main on the east side on the street between Durhill St. and Elmridge St.? It's building were there from the early 50s to sometime around 1976. I think at one point it became someones private property. It had either a large swimming pool or a huge pond on the property. Here's a pic of the location off Google Earth 1953. http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg60/dlfswi/Picture12.png In fact if you go to Google Earth you can still see where the property was. Edit: The present-day 2023 address would be 3511 Linkwood Drive where the Bethany United Methodist Church is located. When viewing the historical images on Google Earth or Historic Aerials, 69 years ago, the address could have been different. Can confirm there is a swimming pool, pond, or a body of water next to the house.
  5. What about the Twenty Nine Palms Motor Hotel At 9430 South Main Street.
