Space City Snapshots

Between the 1920s and 1990s, photographer Bob Bailey and his brother Marvin captured iconic images of the Bayou City, which are showcased in the exhibit "Houston from Behind the Lens: Photographs from the Bob Bailey Studios Collection." The Baileys offer up the Democratic National Convention of 1928, the ticker-tape parade that welcomed home Howard Hughes in 1938, the opening of the Shamrock Hotel in 1949 and other events, with you-were-there authenticity. See the history of our hometown through April 23.
