What a loss for art, architecture and Dallas, that's all I could think about looking through this small book. It has photos of many Dallas hotels and buildings. Most of it was torn down to accommodate the ugly sprawl that was created in the 1950's to make room for super freeways and lackluster corporate buildings that have no character.

Doesn't cover Dallas downtown that much. It seems like much of the old was torn down.

Overrated architect Philip Johnson put up his hideous JFK Memorial in 1970. I wonder what they tore down to put up such an ugly box.

I have to agree with Shannon. I don't know how, with such an interesting idea, this book could be so boring. I had very high hopes because I remember a similar Then and Now book that came out back in the 80s (maybe for the sesqicentennial) that was so well done and covered many areas besides downtown. In this book, the "Then" photos are okay and cover only a short time in Dallas' history (its early years), and the "Now" photos are pretty terrible. This lackluster book contains none of the heart or spirit of Dallas, unfortunately. If you want to see more of what Dallas used to look like, go to the downtown library and check out their photo catalog. You'll get a much better feel for what Dallas used to be like ... and you won't have to spend any money, either.

This is so not a five star book, not even close. The reviewer below is easily impressed I suppose. This book is interesting on some levels, like seeing how Dallas' skyline has changed, but most of the pictures are so close up, it's hard to get perspective. This author has made quit career out of these very mediocre books, I think he has one for every city in America...frankly, I'm waiting for, Cut and Shoot then and now. These book could have been very good, if the archieval photos had been of more interesting areas and if they had gone a bit out of downtown Dallas, I mean how many pictures can you have of Elm or Main Street. These books arent bad, but my advice is pick them up in the bargin bin if you must, but dont be an idiot and pay full price for THIS.

The pictures were beautiful and provided a nice "before" and "after" contrast. I loved it, and so did the person it was intended for as a gift!
