Past and present: T for Thomas

The Thomas Garage operated at 3007 W. Davis St. for many years.

Oak Cliff native Robert Camplen submitted this photo. His dad, Charley Langdon Camplen, is in the back of the tow truck, about 6 years old at the time and with a broken arm.

The property stayed in the family over the decades, and Dallas County property records state the owner is Jack Allen, who died in 2016.

West Davis between Hampton Road and Loop 12 awaits gentrification. It’s coming, no doubt.
