| Texas Architecture
Keeping out of
the cold, wind, rain and heat has occupied mankind for Millennia.
Making our protection from the elements durable, and at the same time
beautiful, is what architecture is all about.
Here are Texas buildings from the past. Some of them are still with
us - these are their images and stories.
Worth Flatiron Building - 1907
Thank you for the Great article and photo's of my favorite building
in the entire metroplex!!!!! As a lover of the unique, and a D/FW
designer for the last couple of decades, I've had a fascination with
the Ft. Worth Flatiron Building since my first sight of it...... -
Our Johnston family really enjoyed the article on the Neils
Esperson Bldg. The decorative masonry is also a tribute to the
work of my husbands grandfather Hugh White Johnston..... -

Thank you so much for Texas Escapes web page. I found it while I was
looking for info about the Mellie
and Neils Esperson Buildings. When I was born in 1941, my dad,
Henry Edward Criss, Sr., was working as a pipefitter,
building the Mellie. I am writing a chronology of his and my life
and I needed info about these two important buildings -- and here
it is on the Internet -- for us all to enjoy. - Dona Criss Terry,
