Seven old photos of Oak Cliff that aren’t that old

Everything in Oak Cliff is changing so quickly, and it’s not going to slow any time soon.

Some of the changes are a big improvement, some others, maybe not so much. Take a walk down memory lane with these not-so-old photos of Oak Cliff.

Below is the building on West Davis at Edgefield, formerly known as Cannon’s Village. Five or six years back it housed West Davis Dental and a Mexican grocer. Now it’s been renovated and has a French restaurant, a cheese shop, the Cozy Cottage children’s boutique and the Book Doctor.

People still come to Bishop Arts looking for the Soda Gallery.

The new Gloria’s is so nice, but it’s just not the same.

The old facade of Gonzalez Restaurant. We’re just glad it’s still there.
