I saw the following photo on Facebook and thought it was interesting due to the distant background. I think it shows an aerial view of the Astrodome area looking southwest in 1965. Loop 610 is under construction. (The feeders are the double lanes across the upper third of the frame.) Kirby is the street next to the parking lot, and South Main angles off into the upper right side of the frame.
The pilot flying the helicopter, Frank Pasket, submitted it to the Facebook Page, Traces of Texas.

Donna Christopher Baker sent me the following link to an article in The Houston Chronicle. It explains how many of Houston's suburbs got their names. Click the photo below to view the article.
