Since Dallas Ain't Got Much History Left, We'll Just Have to Look at these Old Photos Instead

So, yesterday this old photo of Odell McDuffy and Sam Stillman selling newspapers on a Dallas street corner (circa 1913) showed up on Shorpy, which highlights daily several beautimous old photos stored in the Library of Congress's archives. One mouse click later, and yesterday had turned into today as I sifted through dusty Dallas photos, some of which date back 100-plus years. Up above is a photo I found on the LoC's site bearing the caption, "Noon hour at the Dallas Cotton Mill. Location: Dallas,Texas." It's also from 1913. Click on it. It'll get much, much bigger. All are suitable for framing -- um, gifts! --Robert Wilonsky
