It snowed today in Dallas! It’s pretty, but not as pretty as this 1962 night-time view of Commerce and Akard (looking west). Even the approaching slush looks sophisticated in glamorous black-and-white.

(See a fantastic color photo from 1957 showing the northwest corner of the Adolphus block with that incredible Walgreen neon sign in full view, taken from the front of the Baker Hotel, here.)
