Whilst dealing with the very helpful Beth Andresen in the Dallas Public Library's photo division, for the artwork accompanying Schutze's item from yesterday about DART, I came across some unidentified photos on the Texas/Dallas History & Archives's home page. Turns out, the library has hundreds of donated pictures in need of IDs -- names, places, times, so forth. So, once a week or thereabouts, Unfair Park will feature an orphan from the stack to see if we can jar loose a longtime local's thoughtsicles.
Far as anyone at the library can figure, the debut entry is a "restaurant and sports bar in Dallas" that dates to around 1970; here's another photo from inside the same joint, for those getting warmer, warmer, warmer. If you can ID the pic, e-mail the library folks, who will be most obliged. --Robert Wilonsky
