Dallas Downtown BW Red Pegasus – We capture this image with the Dallas downtown skyline in black and white with only the Pegasus in Red. The Pegasus has stood on top of the Magnolia Petroleum Building or Magnolia hotel since 1934 till 1999 when it came down due to damage over the years and and was replaced with a new flying horse which sits on top of the Magnoila Hotel today. However in 2011 a group of Dallas artist and entreprenuers reconditioned the orginal flying horse back to life and it was place on an oil derrick in front of the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas. Dallas pegasus have been a sense of pride for the people living here especially in the early 1940’s through 1999 as it came to be a become that you were home once you saw it. When the Magnolia was built it was the tallest building in Dallas so you could see the Pegasus from quite a distance. Today it stand in from of the Omni Hotel with the down Dallas skyline including the bank of America plaza, Renaissance Tower, Fountain Place to name a few of the most iconic buildings in the city in this scene. The Pegasus and Dallas go back a long time it has become a landmark for the many who live and visit the city.
