Nice pics on here. Anyone have pictures of the Alamo Cement plant before it was turned into the Quarry Market?

I went to the search engine " Alamo Cement Factory"
& found this.

Are those photographs displayed in the Quarry theater?

I am also not sure if we are allowed to post pics of photos we did not take ourselves due to copyright issues but we can post links to them.

Not sure if they're on display.
Also even though I posted the name of the one who took the pics,
I will be posting the links instead from now on unless I took them
myself.

Thanks Merovee , for pointing it out in a very positive manner.
You have my sincere respect .

Thank you.

I think those are the ones I've seen on display at the theater, you can even see the downward escalator on the bottom portion of that photo.

I miss the way it used to feel driving through there years ago before the development. It used to be so sleepy. From time to time I also see bricks with "ALAMO" stamped on 'em. Gotta love the nostalgia.

I know the feeling ...I used to ride my Schwinn Phantom
through there all the time.
Another thing...not until you mentioned it, I never realized
I had this brick on my book shelf...

Cool bookend. I was wondering if anyone had pictures they had taken personally or another view than the one from the theatre?

Interesting perspectives on the old place. That was something I always thought would be there, it was just part of life in San Antonio.

So many places that are no longer here. I appreciate & respect all the
members here who take the time to post their thoughts & images of
our San Antonio.
Thank You.

Awesome photo!!! Could you tell us about the brick with the actual Alamo embossed on it?

You have also inspired me to go into the backyard and begin cleaning these to bring them inside.



There was a third brick but so badly damaged I could barely make out the ALAMO imprint.

The "No Horses Permitted" rule listed there always causes me to smile while imagining a clip-clop sound coming my way for a few seconds.
