Then and Now: Lake Charles, Louisiana
The Documerica Returns traveling exhibit continues to be on display at Fountain Place in downtown Dallas through tomorrow. From there it will move on to make an appearance at the National Archives in Fort Worth until August 29, before moving on to Atlanta.
Hours and Directions for the National Archives southwest office.
Last week, we put out a challenge to match 40-year old scenes from Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. Through the end of 2013, you can submit your best shots of original Documerica scenes from any of these location challenges to State of the Environment on Flickr.
This week, the spotlight is on Lake Charles, Louisiana. Let’s hope the scenes have dramatically improved since then.
Live nearby? Send in your best shots for a chance to be in a larger exhibit at the U.S. National Archives in Washington D.C. from March – September of 2013. Be sure to let us know which Documerica scene inspired you.
