Two More Bite the Dust

Two more buildings were torn to make way of Dallas' "progress."

The first was St. Ann's School, which was built about 1925. It was the first Hispanic school in the City. I will admit it was a rather plain build0ing – but – a high rise very expensive condo will rise in its place. As if we need another one.

The next was the Mobil station on Buckner and Garland Road, which had been there forever. At least they took the flying horse off the top to be put later in the museum at the Old Red Courthouse (I'm surprised that hasn't been torn down). The station was very art decoy and very classy. People from the area stopped to get a piece of the pink brick for souvenirs. Being built in its place: Another Bank!
