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.


Here’s another view of West Davis at Clinton, circa 2009.


The former Torres Body Shop now houses Davis Street Espresso and Oil and Cotton.


Wave your hands in the air if you ever went to see DJ EZ Eddie D spin at Quinn.


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.

    Photo #1 – left to right in the 1940’s – 1960’s = A&P Grocery Store, Schindler’s Bakery and Cannon’s Variety Store. All great places!

    Shindlers Bakery was in the Cannon Village for many years along with Cannon Variety store.

    One of the yellow tables at Soda Gallery was from my kitchen.
