Friday Flashback: High Above Dallas, 1958
Courtesy Justin Cozart
We end the work week with this awfully golden oldie. Seems our photo-loving, history-having pal Justin Cozart's been digging in his grandpa's box of photos again, and this time 'round he's come up with something particularly fascinating: slides from the 1950s-era study "documenting the advent of sprawl in Dallas." Visit his Flickr page for several amazing photos -- say, this one of a Love Field-bound plane flying over a barren Bachman Lake in 1956; or this one of long-gone Park Cities Airport -- but I dig this one, especially when blowed up real good.
