Ah, The More Things Change

Courtesy our historian Justin Cozart, yet another page out of history -- this one from 1930, to be exact. He explains:

This is an early map of Dallas displaying the belt parkways from the first city plan in 1911 along with parkland designated for the new levees being built. It seems like, even in 1912, the city was looking for a way to use all of that river bottom land for parks.

A comment left on the page disputes the parkway theory. Still, it's like a centerfold just for Schutze, who can find the poster-sized version right here.
