Above: the empty (and almost sterile) “newsroom” of The Dallas Morning News, around 1903. There’s either a big fire somewhere, or news has taken the day off.

Below: the new Morning News building, about 1900. Located at the northwest corner of Commerce and Lamar, this is the Lamar side.

And the somewhat show-bizzy sign, studded with bulbs — one hopes it flashed at night.
