Library of Congress
The times, they were a-changin' in 1945, when this pic was taken.

Flashback Friday

The photo here, called Cowboy and skyline, Dallas, Texas, 1945, comes from the Library of Congress, and it's the featured item here today. It's downloadable in several sizes, and just perfect for that special someone in your life who thinks a bridge nobody's ever gonna use will turn downtown Dallas into Paris, which is probably the last thing the guy in this picture ever imagined or wanted. --Robert Wilonsky
