Christmas in Downtown Houston. The Lane Bryant and Miller High Life signs compete for prominence, and a polite family of three waits at the curb, the girls properly attired in white ankle socks.

When we wrote about the documentary being made about the Astrodome, we showed some pictures taken by Cecil E. Burdick, Jr. His son Josh has forwarded some more, offering a fascinating color look into Houston as it entered the Space Age.
