On the Austin board I sometimes across a post with a collection of everyday pictures from "back in the day" in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Not necessarily historical photos, but pictures of everyday locations and businesses you would recognize if you grew up during that time. Anyone know of something similar for Lubbock?

Feeling a little nostalgic for the Hub I guess....

There's a Facebook page called "I Love Lubbock" with some old (and newer) photos. Might be the kind you're looking for.....

If you ever get the chance to visit Gardski's on Broadway, they have some great pictures of ol' Lubbock on the walls. Not the best food in town but I kind of like the atmosphere.

Thanks rr. I was unaware of that website. When I opened it up, the first building I saw was the one I worked out of in the 1980s, the Federal Building.

Is it the same Federal Building that is in use today?

I left Lubbock in about 1986/87 so I'm not sure. However, the Yellow Pages still gives the address as the one for Federal offices. I believe the building was called the George M. Mahon building.
