Will, I believe that Loop 410 would run just about right up the middle of that photo.

Thanks for clarifying my error on the N. St Mary's street label by Mike Persia's Car Dealership.
It was definitely South St Mary's.

Gosh...I have a million questions for you....haha! I'll have to start writing them down. Got a minute?

I had forgotten about that kingMud thing Cat.

the minutes are getting shorter and shorter,
but I do have at least one or two for you.

I just Googled your Dorothy St. and saw that it is still just one block long
and realized that its location put you just down Hackberry south from Drexel St.
and the old Boys Club that I wrote in about a month or two back.
Did you ever go there when it was operating?
The building is still there and looks the same mostly, except that
it is now apparently a warehouse or maintenance shops/offices for SAISD.
Adios for now, BudB

Bud, I only lived there on Dorothy for a few months,
and I know nothing on the Boy's Club.

On that Google Street View, about the middle of the block, looking east,
there's a guy watering a lawn in front of a green house.
That's where I lived.

I remember when we moved in, right over the kitchen stove,
there was a Campbell's Pork and Beans can stuck in the ceiling.
Only thing I could figure was someone left a stack of cans on the stove
and one of them exploded, launching the Pork and Beans into the ceiling.

That's also the house where I learned.......
if your dog kills a skunk and you put it in a plastic garbage can,
you'll have to throw the can away too.

If you look back through that lot to the left of the house,
you're looking straight into what was Norman's Garage.

On the other side of that lot to the left (the rock house)
lived a really nice old couple that I did a lot of work for over the years.
He owned the Broadway Bowling Alley between 8th and 9th.
I still have a bunch of Lone Star and Pearl Beer pencils from the lanes.

If you google around the block to HackBerry,
I believe that's (maybe) Norman's Used Car Lot

I'm sorry everyone, but this thread has gotten too large and it has started to affect our forum performance. I have to close it.
