Unreal pics. The link to the music was a nice touch!!! Love that theme, I wonder if natives of Dallas hate the music that outsiders see as being synonymous with their town?

Always liked the thought of Dallas. Flashy but pretty city. Had the chance to go there in my youth but didn't. Kinda bugs me. I think it's the odd combination of a landlocked western town, coupled with its obscene wealth from oil, the 80's show and most obviously the history with JFK. To me it's always been an intriguing place and probably one that I'll always want to visit.

Great shots of the Schoolbook depository and the grassy knoll. Noticed a high-walled, light-coloured structure in the centre of a pathway on one photo; was this a memorial? And there was another picture where vertical stabilizers of aircraft were visible in the background. I'm assuming this is Love Field, no? Looks very close to the city.

Great thread, hope it stays active for a long time to come. Dallas to me will forever be a fascinating place. Keep 'em coming.

yep. this is why the urban showcase is the most superior section of SSC by far.

nice contrast of new, rich buildings and old, rundown ones still in operation.

Nice comments but just for that fleeting post, was it really necessary including all his/her pics again so soon after the thread was started?! Page now takes soooo long to load. Think of the bandwidth!!!
