Downtown Dallas Was Happening! In 1898.
Here's something I stumbled across on eBay this morning -- and, lucky you, three whole days remain to bid on this trio of photos, for which the opening bid's stuck at a whole $6.99. Says the California seller -- and the back of the pictures -- they date back to an 1898 Shriners parade through downtown, which appeared back then to be quite walkable. Must have been all the glass-box retail and free parking.
