July 4 1962 Downtown (NASA)


Recommended Posts

Hello all -

 

I realize there is VERY little to go on here, but wondering if anyone can help me figure out where exactly this is downtown.  It was July 1962 when the Manned Spacecraft Center moved to Houston.  There was a parade downtown to celebrate.  My grandmother likely took the photo, as I found it in a box of her pictures.  My dad had moved to Houston with NASA (but they didn't know him yet).  It would be fun to know the exact block they were standing to watch the parade and take this photo, but would need to be able to identify the building across the street (pretty plain looking):
