The photos above and the text just below are from a publication from about 1946 which was prepared for potential newcomers to the city in order to encourage them to move their businesses and/or residences to Dallas. This page focuses on the city’s superior medical centers, including Parkland Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital, Scottish Rite Crippled Children’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Bradford Memorial Hospital for Babies, and Baylor University Hospital.
