Vertigo58 Posted November 14, 2007 Share Posted November 14, 2007 If you drive down 610 East Frwy from Downtown and exit Lockwood make a left and head about 3 miles to Englewood Freight Yards. Cross overpass and your in Englewood. The lots were very inexpensive in the 1940's especially after WWII. This little neighborhod is very close to Kashmere Gardens. Not to confuse with Denver Harbor (south of Freight Yards). Englewood consisted of huge undeveloped lots as in 1946 photo below. This specific area in photo is densely populated now. As vets returned from the war they quickly built new homes and started families in this working class part of the city. The railroad was just next door along with numerous trucking and distribution plants further down Liberty and Wallisville Road's. As the city boomed and new development headed west, these parts of Houston were basically forgotten. Would surprise me if any long time Houstonian's remember it. A travel back in time indeed. Check out the newly planted Magnolia tree! http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x107/ro...-27-2007-09.jpg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
