There was an article in the Star-Telegram many years ago, I believe in the 1970s or 1980s, that was a history of Fort Worth's Wedgwood neighborhood.  I believe it was called "Living in the Land of W" or perhaps just "The Land of W".  Anyone remember it?  As I recall it was rather extensive, and I'd sure like a copy!

Why would you wish to wade and wallow through such a weird, wonderful, wordy story?

Now, if you really really want to read this article, why not download it from the online S-T archives (7-day free membership!)?  Or go to the FW Public Library and slog through the newspaper microfilm, microfiche, or whatever they got these days.

I didn't know the S-T had an online archive. The archive sure wasn't the easiest thing to find. Found a link in a FAQ:

http://www.star-tele...er-service/faq/

 

The Library should have it.
