Texas Time Travel: Dallas, Forth Worth Then and Now
After spending last week in Austin, the exhibit is expected to arrive by Wednesday to Fountain Place at 1445 Ross Avenue in downtown Dallas. It will remain on display in the lobby until August 14 before heading to the National Archives in Fort Worth.
Texans, now’s your chance to earn web glory and boasting rights next spring in Washington D.C. Match these scenes today and submit your entry to State of the Environment. Be sure to let us know which Documerica scene inspired you. Extra kudos if you can catch the same number of pedestrians in stunning shades, or if you find that moose… Who knew there were moose in Texas?
In the photo below, we need a bit of help identifying this hotel and location. Hopefully for locals it’s enough of a clue. Weigh in if you know where it is and be sure to submit your best match to State of the Environment!
