It's hard to believe, but on April 17th, this website will have been in existence for 25 years.  I started it in 1997 with just a listing of Downtown buildings, addresses, architects, and dates.  On the first day, the site had no photographs.

 

I don't know if we are going to have any kind of celebration, because getting together may be risky.  It's also hard to predict what will be happening with the pandemic in 3 months.  I'm just glad that I have been able to provide the website free of charge to the city and the world.

Thanks for the comment!  I still have a lot to do on the site, but I just take it one day at a time.

I didn't want to derail any other threads, so I decided to post this here.  I wanted to say thank you for all of the many and differing posts that were made today.  I was pretty busy at work and I had to pay a site visit to an unglamorous project that I'm starting at Southwest High School.  It's to provide an accessible route from the parking lot to the Baseball Field.  Current access is a long flight of stairs.

Today marks the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of Architecture in Fort Worth as a website.  Obviously, I don't have any celebration for it, but I did want to post it here on the forum that today was the day.  I would like to thank all of you for participating in the Forum discussions.

April 17, 1997 was the founding date of the website.  It has been a lot of fun for me to share information about my city.  I thank all of you for your support.  The reason that I almost let it slide is that I had my booster vaccine on Friday evening, and I had some issues yesterday, but I didn't sleep last night.  I was very draggy and sleepy until about 2 this afternoon.

Thank you, RD.

 

I have been in a rut lately, so I decided to take a day trip. I ventured further away from home yesterday than I had since the pandemic started.  I went to Hillsboro and Waco.  I will have some pictures to post.
