Notes: We made one last trip to see the Statue of Liberty before moving to Texas. It was Mom's idea; Dad wasn't too excited about it. I remember staninding in line for hours, then bailing out. (Van)

ID: The Pink Olds

Annotation: Our new car. Across the street from new home
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: Dad bought the Pink Olds while he was down in Houston and we were still living at the Soundview Appartment in White Plains. He wouldn't say what color it was, only that it was a 'light color.' I was the only one to correctly guess pink. In fact, I was the only one to come close! Mom was 'surprized.' (Van)

KC1S078A.jpg
ID: Houston City Hall
Keywords: Houston
Annotation: City Hall Houston, Pool in front. Yellow lilies.
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: This was one of the 'big buildings' in Houston back then. I believe it's entirely fossiliferous limestone. (Van)

Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: I had forgotten how the Texaco Building was two entirely different buildings stuck together. They were connected internally, but the two buldings styles were quite different inside. (Van)

Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: Don't eat the oleander! We were warned about this thousands of times. there were horror stories of people roasting weenies on oleander stcks and dying horrible deaths of poisoning. Chuck and I ate very few of the shrubs in general. (Van)

KC1S080A.jpg
ID: Texas National Bank
Keywords:
Annotation: Top of one office bldg. Houston (notice the sky)
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: I think this is the Weather Ball, the 'spiritual center' of Houston in the early '60's, although I thought it was the Conico Building that sported it. It would glow green for fair weather, white for rain, maybe red for huricanes, etc. I never met anyone who actually knew the color code, but it was discussing what it might mean that made it so interesting. I don't see anything interesting about the sky, though... (Van)

KC1S080B.jpg
ID: Mimosa
Keywords:
Annotation: Mimosa in bloom next to Town and Country apts. Houston
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: The blooms should be bright pink, but it seems to have faded from this slide. Our back yard was later dominated by a mimosa tree, so this one must have made quite an impression. (Van)

KC1S081A.jpg
ID: Town and Country
Keywords:
Annotation: One unit--Town and Country Houston (Mimosa)
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: It's unclear if this was our unit, but if not it was just like it. We moved here from the Soundsview appartments as soon as school closed in N.Y., and a month after it had let out in Texas. Tere was a pool, which made it seem like heaven to Chuck and me. There were also roaches and thundering window air conditioners which made it seem awful to Mom. We ate out a lot. (Van)

Notes: Not shown in any of the pictures are the car ports we parked under (which I believe had colorful courogated fiberglass roofs.) The air was also enriched with the constant smell of Tar Burners, which metled tar for roof patching. (Van)

Notes: We marveled at the walk/don't walk lights when we moved to Houston as well. We used to scamper back to the curb when they changed to 'don't walk' until we read in the paper that they meant dont start walking. The papers could have had quite a bit of fun with us... (van)

Notes: While Mom and Dad and the Gilchrests sat on the patio and talked, I built this fantastic contraption. I don't remember its purpose. Then I would chase the cigarette butts pitched into the yard and use them to burn through the attached strings. I wound up smoking myself for 15 years. Don't let your kids play with butts. (Van)

Keywords: zoo
Annotation: Houston Zoo
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: The zoo is in the middle of Hermann Park, which is beautiful. There's a miniture train and a pond. At that time you could fish for sunfish in the pond. There were also baloons with a Mickey Mouse-head shaped baloon inside a transparent baloon. Very pricey and desirable. Only acquired when we went with Aunt Lois. (Van)

KC1S108A.jpg
ID: San Jacinto Monument
Keywords:
Annotation: None
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: In my second grade class we studied Texas history. Mom became quite interested in it, and this probably prompted our trip to the nearby San Jacinto Monument, commemorating the last battle of the Revolution, where Santa Anna was captured. Although the name is clearly Spanish, sites associated with the Texas Revolution are pronounced with Americian phonics, so the J is sounded like in 'Joe', not as a Spanish 'H'. (Van)
