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.
Subject: Ft. 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...... - S. Hanks
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..... - The Johnston Family
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
