Waco-McLennan County Library
Central Library
Waco, TX
The Central Library branch of the Waco-McLennan County Library was designed by Bush & Witt and built in 1961. These photos are from 2006 and 2011. Later in 2011, the building was remodeled. The entrance has been moved to the side of the building and those details have been lost. [map]

Lincoln Lock
Duncanville, TX
Corsicana Super Bowl
Corsicana, TX
The Lincoln Lock building was probably built in the 1960s. I believe it originally housed an Ashburn's Polar Bear Ice Cream stand. [map]

I believe the Corsicana Super Bowl opened in the mid-1950s. [map]

Tapestry's
Abilene, TX
Tapestry's was a fabric store. The building was vacant when these photos were taken in 2011. It was still vacant in 2013. I don't know if this was the original tenant. The building appears to be from the 1960s. [map]

Main Street Storage
Denison, TX
Amon Carter Museum of American Art
Fort Worth, TX
The Main Street Storage building previously housed Barrett Drugs. The curved canopy was probably installed in the 1950s or 1960s. That was kept while the upper facade was remodeled around 2008. This photo is from 2011. The "radios", "cameras", etc. signs are from when the building housed the drug store. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art was designed by Philip Johnson. Texas shell stone was used for the exterior. It opened in 1961. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
