Situated 45 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Houston has created an artificial deep water port. The Turning Basin is the wonder of the maritime world. It has been made navigable by deepening and widening an old river bed extending from the city limits of Houston to the Gulf of Mexico. [From back of postcard]. This date was approximated by researching the building or site depicted on the postcard, or by examining the appearance of the postcard itself.
