This was taken during a flood in 1949 in front of the 7th Street Theatre in Fort Worth Texas, on the corner of 7th Street and University, known locally as "Six Points". Photo by Lee Angle. I used to work for Lee in the 80s, and he gave me this negative and many others he was throwing out during one of his many clean-and-toss sessions. I always thought it was a fantastic photo, so I thought that I'd share it. View full size.
