This snapshot from the fifties I would guess ran first on North Texas e-News, where I grabbed it for Positively 4th St. I think this one is from 4th St, because I did a little Photoshopping on it that makes the moon brighter and with a nimbus.

Definitely 4th Street then, and currently known for many years, as Sam Rayburn Drive.

Good photo,

BTW, about 4 blocks south of your family home :)

Yep, 719 E 4th was about that far away, only east of this point. Liberty, where we resided from 1949-65, was a bit further to the north. This is also the only known photo of which I am aware which features the old Best Theatre, where I was raised.

And who remembers the Best today?

I am a few years younger than you, Class of "71.

Lived 1 block north of your family.

I did not know you, but I do remember Bowdwn Cleaners by city hall.

My cousins lived on Liberty St,the Cothams...

What's your name? The Cothams were the only family living there when we left who had been there when we arrived except for the Popes, the pioneers of that section. My brothers Joey and Donnie and I, Tim, were raised with the Cothams, Jimmy and Danny. Also the Pope twins, Jean and Dean. Also plenty of others. Our range went from Denison north through the block where we lived, at 403. We didn't know much about the Saunders or anyone else in that block below Russel.

Let me see, others I recall. The Hembrys. The Starnes. The Carpenters. The Grices. The Whitts. Names I remember because they had kids I knew.

The last survivor of those old days still living at Evans and Liberty, Katherine Pope, passed away recently. That closes the old neighborhood, I would guess.
