Old Houston Photos Mashed with Modern Houston, Part 2

It's time for another look at vintage Houston photos mashed with their present-day locations.

Since the last post, people have asked why I am doing this, and it's never just one answer. Houston needs to be remembered for its go-get-`em-everything-is-bigger-in-Texas ways. I've heard people complain about how much downtown Houston has changed, and here is proof that we really might be trying to preserve its history when it can be done.

This time, I am happy to have chosen locations that Houstonians see on a daily basis. Especially with baseball season in full swing:

9. Jones Hall
Jones Hall, unchanged since the year it won the American Institute of Architects' Honor Award, 1967.
