1937 Frontier Fiesta Brochure
Posted 20 July 2007 - 05:30 PM
I was flipping through a copy of the 1937 Frontier Fiesta brochure that I got recently and came upon a page which is apparently a rendering of a new Striplings store being built. I presume it was the downtown store. Any information would be appreciated...
The back cover of this same brochure also had a nice picture of the now emasculated Texas Electric power plant which is owned I guess by TCC currently. I think it is looking from the north toward downtown. A nice rendering of the first Casa Manana is also on the page:
And I couldn't resist including from the Cover page another picture of Casa along with some additional architecture in a different style:
Note: the Frontier Fiesta was essentially the second year of the Fort Worth Centennial celebration. All this was happening right in the middle of the Great Depression. Before Zolof or Prozac
