A Downtown Dallas Fire Sale, Circa 1950
Yet again, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK is kind enough to point our attention to a vintage Dallas photo selling for pennies on the dollar on eBay. This one's an especially action-packed shot taken on January 14, 1950, when the H.L. Green Department Store in the Wilson Building suffered a four-alarm fire that caused considerable damage. There's but one day left to buy the photo, for which there's a single bid of $9.99.
