Oak Cliff Yesterday

Need some photos for a project on Oak Cliff or Dallas history?

Try Oak Cliff Yesterday, which I’ve added to the blog roll here.  Great images.

For example, check out this 1938 postcard showing 5th Street at Lake Cliff Park:

Compare it to a photo of the big house on the right, from 2010, found at Oak Cliff Yesterday:

Can you find other treasures at that site?  Do you recognize most of those old businesses and locations?
