Gruene Dance Hall B W – Gruene Hall in black and white, This area outside of New Braunfels is an old German community by Ernest Gruene which is also the towns name, oh it is prononced “Green”. Now this area is part of New Braunsfel and is the oldest dance hall in Texas built somewhere in the late 1878 as a social gathering place and a saloon for the cotton farmers in Gruene. Tx. Gruene Hall is still in buisness today with a saloon and dance hall. It still has that vintage feel of an old Texas dance hall. The water tower stands behind the dance hall in this image on a nice cloudy day. We like the contrast of the black and white in this image. Also available in color.
This Dallas vintage Pegasus show a close up with the Reunion Tower in the background as it appears to hoover over the city. The vintage Pegasus and the Reunion Tower are both official lankmarks for the city of Dallas and a toursit destination of things to see. Many come downtown to see these two iconic structures. The Vintage 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. It seem fitting to display the Pegasus as a Vintage Pegasus since this landmark has been around for a very long time. 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. Now we have two Dallas Pegasos flying high over the Dallas skyline. The whole story of the pegasus came from greek mythology.
Dallas State Fair with the Texas Star at the State Fair with a vintage look. This fair is an annual event held at the Fair Park in Dallas from the last weekend in September for 24 days. The Texas Star is one of it most popular and longest running rides. The fair run along the same time as the college football game which is traditionally between Texas and Oklahoma. We love the Texas Star Ferris wheel with a vintage look in this image. This ferris wheel can be seen from a distance being that it is one of the largest in the US. We felt that we wanted to represent the long history since the late 1880’s with a vintage look much like what you would seen on a postcard at the early years of the fair with these two photographs. We also have none vintage image of the Texas Star.
