That's when W. H. Parrish Publishing Company published Art Work of Dallas, Tex., a copy of which resides in the Texas/Dallas History & Archives Division at the downtown library. It's quite the thing: a 12-volume collection consisting of 88 photos of Dallas way back when -- everything from street scenes to shots of downtown buildings to look-sees at the likes of Philip Sanger and W.H. Abrams's homes, the Queen City R.R. Car House and the Oak Cliff College for Young Ladies. Says the Abilene-based seller of this item, presently sitting at $99.99 with no bids: "This is an amazing historical resource that provides a rare glimpse into the early days of this vibrant city!"
