by Paula Bosse

Here are a few images I have added to old posts. (Click pictures to see larger images.)

Above, a photo from 1973 by Steve Fitch showing the Chalk Hill Drive-In. (Source: Smithsonian American Art Museum, Transfer from the National Endowment for the Arts) And below, a 1947 photo showing the parking area of the Northwest Hi-Way Drive-In at Northwest Highway and Hillcrest (the view is to the northwest, with Hillcrest running from the lower left corner to the upper right). (Source: Dallas Public Library, George I. Gird Collection) Both photos have been added to the post “Dallas’ First Two Drive-In Theaters — 1941.”



Speaking of drive-ins, this postcard image featuring a comely Sivils carhop has been added to “Sivils Drive-In, An Oak Cliff Institution: 1940-1967.” (Source: eBay)



Speaking of food, this matchbook cover has been added to the post “The Filling Station on Greenville Avenue: From Bonnie & Clyde to Legendary Burger Place.” (Source: eBay)



This photo of the MKT depot and the Katy Flyer is GREAT. I’ve added it and the novelty snapshot of three MKT travelers to the post “Leaving Dallas on the Katy Flyer — ca. 1914.” (Source for both: eBay)




These two images of an MKT timetable from 1900 have been added to another Katy Flyer post, “M-K-T Railroad’s ‘Katy Flyer Route’ — 1902.” (Source: eBay)




Have you not heard of the “Caveteria”?! Then hie yourself over to “The Caveteria: ‘Marvelous Food at Moderate Prices.'” (Source: eBay)



And. lastly, the Keeley Institute was here to help. There were addiction problems-a-plenty in Big D as the 20th century approached. Read about them in the post Under the Paw of the Tiger: Taking the Cocaine, Morphine, and Opium ‘Cure’ — 1890s.” (Source: Dallas Morning News ad, 1899)
