Night and Day

Texas - Dallas Multiview

For: US to US Travelling Envelope Round Robin - Group 43
Notes: The top portion of the card shows the Dallas skyline, which was also shown on a card that I posted on May 10.  The bottom half of the card shows several buildings close-up, including the West End Marketplace.  The West End is the historic district of Dallas, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  One of the attractions in the West End is the Sixth Floor Museum, which is located in the Texas School Book Depository.  Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy from the sixth floor of this building (allegedly).  The West End Marketplace was massive mall and entertainment complex.  I say was because it apparently closed in 2006, so I guess this card was printed before that.
