Houston photo: Drain into Buffalo Bayou, near Sabine Street, Houston, Texas, April, 1977

Drain into Buffalo Bayou, near Sabine Street, Houston, Texas, April, 1977

I was near the Sabine Street bridge in April of 1977, when I took this photo on Agfachrome. I don't remember seeing it on more recent visits to the area, by foot, bicycle and kayak.

Does it still exist? Where exactly? Might it be associated with the old underground water reservoir nearby?

Yes, it does still exist.  I recently took the bayou Segway tour downtown, and when we were stopped on the hill next to the Jamail skatepark, we could see it in the distance.  I wanted to look at it up close but did not get over there.  I've been in Houston a very long time and along that part of the bayou multiple times and never noticed it before.  Maybe the new work along the bayou cleared out plants or earth that was blocking it from view?
