David Fuqua Collection

Summary: Donor gave 23 photographs of Fort Worth buildings deemed of historic value in the early 1980s. Each are 4 by 6 inch color snapshots taken on June 23 and 24, 1981. Many of the buildings either no longer exist or are altered in appearance. For example, the image shown of Fire Station Number One in downtown Fort Worth is now surrounded by one of two 38-story glass towers originally called City Center, as shown on the sign attached to the Fire Station in the photograph.
