Downtown Houston, Texas
Street scene in downtown Houston, with “Jan 16, 1926” written in white ink at the bottom of the photograph. A number of cars can be seen, along with the streetcar tracks. A block of buildings is shown, one with construction scaffolding covering the façade. A number of business signs, both painted on the side of buildings or in the form of billboards, are legible, including ‘Keystone’, ’22 Story Office Building for the Houston Post-Dispatch under construction’, ‘L. Lechenger, 415 Main, Jeweler, will occupy this corner with the most beautiful store in America’, and ‘Ready for Occupancy about Jan. 1st, for office space see rental managers, San Jacinto Trust Co., complete banking & trust facilities, Main at Polk’. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
