Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Twice now we've been fortunate enough to discover photos from the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition at Fair Park being disposed of on eBay by the Tribune Company. Now there's a third stack of old Baltimore Sun photos consisting of four shots, each one a nighttime look-see both iconic and essential -- the top photo especially, which is available here for a mere $24.99 opening bid with no takers so far. The other three are here, here and here -- and you've got till tomorrow to stake your claim, so, ya know, Happy Father's Day and stuff.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
