Another great resource on Fort Worth's buildings is the multi-volume Tarrant County Historic Resource Survey. Historic Fort Worth, Inc. (of which I'm a Board Member) has the ownership of those books and they are for sale, if you want the older print versions. The Southside is out of print. We are currently digitizing surveys and updating them on our web site. You have to be a member of Historic Fort Worth to view the updated surveys. That website is www.historicfortworth.org.

Thanks for the information. I'll take a look at it. I just finished rescanning the pages of the portfolio to make them appear better when looking at the higher resolution images. I wish I could have started this project while my mother was still able to help but hindsight and foresight. She saved huge amounts of information over the years but in her later years it became lost or mixed into other stuff and at 90 she is no longer able to help.

Thanks for posting about your Grandfather. I knew the name since I have been a member of Fort Worth Lodge #148 in the Masonic Temple building for the last 26 years. It along with the old Cooks Childrens Hospital next door are great buildings. Look forward to hearing more and seeing any photos.

My grandfather was a member of the Julian Field Blue Lodge. I have never been in Masonry. My mother, at 90, thinks my father was a Mason also (probably the same lodge)but apparently he quite going after my grandfather passed away in 1952, if he was a member. I can't find any info on that. I sent an email to the lodge the other day using an email address on their web site but have not had an answer.
