Interesting pics from 1947 era, has a Greek like pattern around the border. I'm going to try to upload them. Well I just went to upload and I don't know what hot linking is or how to do it. Maybe some other time.
Fox did mail order from at least the 1920's. My grandparents in West Texas sent film to San Antonio for development. Pre addressed Fox envelopes, etc. The pictures could be from most anywhere. Just like mail order film development in the 1990's.

The rent was set by how much money you made so it was kinda of a rough place. I lived there from 60 to 62 though it seems much longer. I have a lot of great memories from that place.
Hi CR , yes I do remember that name. I can't recall just where it was though!! The Stinson homes I used to run through all the time!! I believe they were for military families originally and just converted to low income housing in the end!! Probably not long before they built the Stadium there were only a couple of the old two story buildings left standing. They were on the furthest north streets and occupied. Pretty scroungy then. You were probably gone 2-3 years before I was running through there!!

Just reading about the homes and nuns and such on Callaghan. Let me clear up a few things....The Jimenez's owned what is now a pink house, not 8910, but next to it. I am currently the owner of 8910, have the history and have just put a historic marker on it. Regarding the nuns, they live in the complex across the street from 8910 where they run a daycare! Feel free to read more about 8910 at www.8910CallaghanRoad.com Stay well and be happy!

The nuns lived at the end of stonehaven & callaghan rd. Stonehaven was a dirt road when my sister took a kindergarden class there in the summer. I took her to school on my bike. I think it was 1972. I took her to the up to the school (house) one particular day and no one was there. We heard some noise coming from the front yard behind some large bushes. We walked over there and all the nuns were in a swimming pool right on the front corner of the property (the stonehaven-callaghan corner)in thier bathing suits. These were the same nuns from ursline, before ST. Matthews was built and church was held in the Ursline cafeteria. Quite a site we were not ready for!! Since I moved back, I looked and the pool and bushes are gone!!

Default Love this Thread

I recently stumbled on to this and have really enjoyed browsing the thread and there are thousands I haven't yet read. Thanks 980 for starting this. My first date with my future and current wife was at the Alamo Drive-In. That was in September 1954. I could toss out some names of places that most of you young folks would not recognize. Anybody here remember Youngblood's chicken or Valerio's Italian? They were both on Broadway.

I still have a speaker from the Alamo. I loved Youngblood's when I was a kid. Did they disappear about the time Church's began? Youngblood's was a chain, restaurants in Austin and Houston, too. Don't know when they went out of business. On Broadway, near the Scout HQ. I don't remember any of the movies showing when I went to the Alamo. The attraction was next to me.

It is a very good book with not only lots of cool fotos but also a lot of neat history and personal stories as well. Of course I'm biased because I wrote it....
I can provide an unbiased kudo for this book - it's well worth the price. Great photos, postcards, and informative narrative.
