Ten Charmingly Strange Old Houston Postcards
You think you have it tough these days as a Houstonian, trying to sell your city as a tourist destination?
Try it back in the days before...ummm...before the Downtown Aquarium Family Fun Restaurant!!!
10. A gift shop!! In a stadium!!
No, the attraction here isn't that this appears to be a stadium gift shop that doesn't sell a single item of clothing, the attraction is those strategically placed seats in the foreground. Just to let you know you're in a stadium and all.
8. Downtown, As Lively As Ever
Aren't we always hearing about how downtown Houston used to be a happening kind of place? Even Cleopatra playing at the Loew's Metropolitan, not to mention a Woolworth's, can't shake off the ghost-town feeling. We're sure everyone's in the tunnel system.
7. Luxury Living
The Graustark Apartments, we are informed by the back of the card, offer not only the choice of furnished or unfurnished (we'll take "un" if this is what's on offer), not only air-conditioning, but....wait for it...."piped-in music." Sign us up!
