The Northwest Dallas County Civic Association

Description: A group of citizens from northwest Dallas County banded together in 1931 to form the Northwest Dallas County Civic Association. Its purpose was to promote the development of the northwest section of Dallas County. They presented the interests of Irving and the surrounding area to county and state governments. They were particularly concerned with road improvment in this area of the county. The group is standing in front of Irving's first city hall. From left to right, starting with the man in the hat, are: Lewis Hancock; the boy is F. M. Gilbert, Jr.; his father, Dr. F. M. Gilbert, Sr.; W. B. Gilbert; Frank Haley; C. P. Caldwell; W. P.

[Volunteers in the Palestine Service Men's Club]

Description: Photo of the volunteers of the Palestine Service Men's Club, which operated to serve soldiers passing through the city. It was organized in June of 1942 by area residents, and was inspired by, but independent from, the USO club. Volunteers offered refreshments, letter-writing materials, music, dancing and conversation in the club's room at the O'Neill hotel, which was located across Spring street from the Railroad tracks. The women also took sandwiches and cookies to distribute to the soldiers unable to leave the trains. Additionally, the Palestine group financially supported a separate Negro Service Club that served African American Troops who often rode at the back of the trains farther down the line from this point. The club stayed active through the final days of the war and the last troop train came through town on January 1, 1946. Many military service people from around the country voiced their gratitude for their services.
