Look: Snow day 1950s

No snow day in Dallas today, but a reader sent us this snapshot from a snow day, apparently taken from a second-floor window at Sunset High School in the 1950s.

We know the photo was taken previous to 1959 because the old streetcar can be seen in the background. There’s also the old Vogue Theater, which has since been turned into a church, as well as the steeple of St. Cecilia Catholic Church, which was destroyed by fire in 2007.

    Correction – the picture would have been taken prior to 1956, as the streetcars stopped runinng in Dallas in January 1956. Ironically, the last run was on the #10-Sunset line that travelled directly in front of Sunset High School.
