OK...not 506 Leal.....but not bad....and Alamo St would be warm......don't know if it's still standing.....and it was on the trade day route in the early 30's? Is this right so far?

Could the float be on Matamoras St. or Monterrey or Durango? "West side of the Creek" neighborhood?

Mud....my official guess is that this building doesn't exist anymore. At least the end of the building on the far right. It's so close to the street that it must be an older neighborhood where the streets have been widened. That awning looks so familiar....but not necessarily unique. I honestly don't know the store/saloon.
My guess is on Market Street...but I don't know where.

Default Re: Pianta Trade Days Float

A couple of weeks ago Mudpuddle posted some great photos of the Pianta Trade Days Float which a challenging question about what building was in the picture.

Did we ever find out? I hate unsolved mysteries!

Yes it was! They are my Great (or Great Great)Aunt and Uncle on my mom's side. They also have (at least used to have) a display in the Buckhorn Hall of Fame. They were a husband and wife team that would tour the country putting on shows.
