Fort Worth, Texas, 1955

Published in blog.hemmings.com

Louis Schlaudt informs us that this photo of his father’s, taken in 1955, depicts the Western Hills Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. Finding out exactly where the hotel stood is a little difficult – postcards from back in the day note its location on the west side of the city, along highways 80, 180, and 377. Only the latter of those three highways seems to remain, and the hotel has since been torn down, so cruising the length of 377 wouldn’t do us any good. The best lead we have comes from a Flickr photo of the hotel and the identification of the nearest cross street as Edgehill Road. Anyway, all that’s just a lead-in to ask what y’all see in this here parking lot?
