At left, Lemmon at Oak Lawn avenues circa 1940; at right, how they looked by 1990. Don't worry -- they're much bigger on Justin's page.

Dallas, a Compare-and-Contrast

Yet again, our old friend Justin Cozart has just posted some essential must-sees to the Dallas Urban History page on Flickr -- this time, a series of before-and-after photos featuring some of the city's more recognizable streets and intersections. Among the lot: Blackburn Street and Oak Lawn Avenue (in 1925 and 1990), Elm Street in the late 1930s and again in '90, and Main Street at the Murphy Crosswalk in the early 1900s and 1990. Fun. Also: sad-making.
