I've recently acquired these nifty little vintage Fort Worth postcards. I figured that if any site would love to see them, it'd be you folks. smile.gif

First up, let's start with something that's still around. Here's the 7th Street canyon:

Then, we have what used to be City Hall, the old library, and the rest of that general area:

Next up, a vintage skyline image:

Finally, my personal favorite - the beauty of the Medical Arts Building:

Enjoy! Discuss, etc.

The MA is my personal favorite. What a beautiful building it was.

The Medical Arts and Aviation Buildings (Trinity Insurance in the postcard) were my favorite skyscrapers when I was younger. Wouldn't the Medical Arts have made a wonderful apartment building?

Yes, it would have. Besides the gorgeousness of the building itself, think of the views!
