Folks love to look at pretty pictures, especially if the pictures are of pretty things. Yesterday's blog post that paired then-and-now photos of the luxurious seafront hotel The Galvez in Galveston prompted reader Mary to write:
The Galvez is an amazingly gorgeous structure. Thanks, George! It's hard to believe we used to wear those long dresses and suits on the seawall, though.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
