I recently picked up an article entitled "Through Texas" taken from an 1879 Harpers Monthly magazine. It was authored by Frank H. Taylor. It had several engravings from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The engraving above is one of the best I have seen that shows the original Courthouse. Also shown I think is part of the public market that was to the east of the Courthouse...

Pete - Thanks, good view

At this risk of raising anyone's hackles could you list the Dallas views?
