  • Dear TE, I have been searching for years for any thing on the Dallas cotton mill people, I was born in 1930 into a family of mill people, I was raised there on Wall St. and went to Lamar School. As I look back, even though it was all I knew - it was still a good life. I remember the "shotgun" houses, sandy streets, old Fritz Park, the stores and shops on Corinth St. and Lamar Street with the old Sears building (which even had a farm store).

    I am now an artist and craftsman and I would like to reconstruct the old neighborhood in model form or as a painting.

    Anything you might have on this area, the people or any ones input I would appreciate having it. Thank you. - Donald Armitage, Old Town, Florida, Donnaldd@msn.com September 9, 2006


  • I've lived in Dallas all my life and made a hobby of B&E on old abandoned buildings when I was younger. (Without damaging them, of course)

    My favorite is an area of downtown that parallels Griffin street. Apparently, there were underground railroad tracks that ran from Union Station all the way to the old Neuhoff plant, where the new American Airlines complex sits. Anyhow, many of the older buildings were connected by a huge, underground tunnel that was split up over the years when owners would wall off their section and use them as basements. .....

    I'd like to visit some of the places you show on your site. I love all the old forgotten history. ..... - Barry Kooda, May 10, 2002
