High Atop the Republic National Bank Building, the Best View of Dallas Circa 1953

Friend of the show Justin Cozart's been digging through his grandfather's boxes of photos again and come across this mighty gem taken during the Republic Bank tower's construction in '53. And if it looks familiar, maybe it's because you're thinking of this iconic photo taken high above the Manhattan skyline. As always, I recommend the poster-sized version. Oh, how I wish I still had my grandfather's Republic National Bank Zippo.
