We began the day on the bridge, we end the day on (OK, near) the bridge -- this time with one of Justin's photos compiled for the Margaret Hunt Hill slide show you'll find here. It was either this or this: from the Library of Congress's archives, a 100-year-old photo of the then-brand-new Houston Street Viaduct, at the time known as the Oak Cliff Viaduct. I was looking at it this evening when Patrick "Buzz" Williams walked by and noticed it on my screen. Said he: "Now there's a bridge." And here it is again. Same photo ... or is it?
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.
