Houston skyline, during National Democratic Convention
A panoramic fish-eye image of the downtown Houston skyline in 1928, with a caption in the lower right-hand corner: "National Democratic Convention, Houston - Texas, June 1928". In the upper left-hand corner is an inset showing the Houston Coliseum, with a hand-drawn arrow showing its location within the larger image. A number of large office buildings are seen in the primary image, including the Rice Hotel and the Niels Esperson Building, as well as the skeletal structure of the JPMorgan Chase Building, with scaffolding and cranes and protruding beams showing the extent of ongoing construction. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
