A Look at Dallas's Long-Ago "NOW"

What you see above is the cover to a slim 1962 tome published by Reinhold in conjunction with the Dallas chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Clearly, the copy I picked up this week at the Forestwood Antique Mall was a downright steal: $25, or $100 less than the copy you can purchase from these fine booksellers.

The whole book, all 80 pages, is a fascinating read -- a trip through the Dallas that is, was and could have been. After the jump, you'll find a scanned excerpt from the chapter titled, simply, "NOW."
