[Clipping with Aerial Photograph of Euless, Texas]

Description: Newspaper clipping with an aerial photograph of Euless, Texas printed May 31, 1964. The photograph was taken by Norman Bradford from a Bell Helicopter. The view is looking west across State Highway 183. The caption accompanying the photograph explains that Euless is a "City Without A Center", as architects "say that the town lacks a unifying central point". A bond program was proposed to create a civic center complex that would "give Euless a 'town square'". The population at the time was 13,000, "expected to double by 1970", according to the newspaper article.
