  1. http://www.chron.com/business/article/This-will-be-the-last-Halloween-for-Houston-s-12258832.php It will be open until the end of the year. Looks like its been sold to developers. Wonder what's on the horizon.
  2. Doing some research for the South Belt history blog, I was rifling through the AIA negatives at the Texas Room in the Julia Ideson building of HPL and couldn't pass up a chance to get a couple of prints of this Googie reminiscent filling station. One sleeve appears to be taken prior to the other. The older of the two, I believe, is the Fina shot, and the later one of the station as a Conoco from the opposing street. Just wanted to share. I shared them (through the magnifying glass) with Tim, the reference librarian who's been such a great help, and he said, "It looks like something just landed from outer space!" Granted, it's eerier on the negative with the whole sky black, but still a fun find. These were shoved in a file folder marked "Unidentified, Area 13" and the only marking on the negative sleeve says Wayside @Polk. If anyone has any additional information, perhaps when the saucers were finally dismantled, I'd love to know!
