Howdy from "Big D"

Circa 1964, looking ENE toward downtown from Interstate 30. This is the skyline of my childhood. The spire of the Republic National Bank Building may have been the tallest object there, but it was the Southland Life Building that enabled us kids to get a bird's eye view of Dallas County. I think "Big D" was the most common slogan for Dallas at that time (besides "the place where Kennedy was shot"). It was probably during the seventies that the phrase "Metroplex" was coined.
