Notes

Series description from donor: "This strip mall was so part of my life growing up in my neighborhood. My family moved into this neighborhood in 1963. Walking to the grocery and drug store, having my hair cut at the local barber and our family Doctor's office was within this complex. I can still hear the train horn that used to run where the DART now runs.

Item description from donor: "Strip mall's final days. intersection of Denton Drive, Hudnall street and Denton Drive Cutoff. One block from my home, it has stood since the 60's when we moved near there. it has been home to a Tom Thumb grocery store, Elliott's Hardware store, Zinder Zee seafood restaurant, Levine's department store and Herrera's Tex-Mex restaurant to name a few. Not to mention my local barber that I grew up with who finally retired in the mid 90's."
