Corpus Christi transformed from a town to a city after the 1926 opening of the
deep-water port, as evidenced in this 1940 picture by the prolific South Texas
photographer Frederick "Doc" McGregor. In the foreground, cranes construct
the T-head piers that jut from the new Corpus Christi Seawall. Looming atop the
bluff in the background are, left to right, the Nixon Building (1927), the Plaza
Hotel (1928), and the Driscoll Hotel (under construction). Courtesy the Dr. Fred-
