This is Dallas with a light snowfall in 1923 (aerial view). The tallest white building in the center right is the Magnolia Building, newly built in 1923. Pegasus was not added to this building until the American Petroleum convention in 1934, when it was still the tallest building in Dallas. The building just this side of the Magnolia is the Adolphus Hotel. Union Terminal is the white building in the forground to the right, with the railroad tracks and embarking platforms. The bridge in the lower left is the Commerce St. bridge, which passes over the old Trinity River channel in the bottom left corner. To the left of this is the properties that would become Dealey Plaza in later years. Note that the Trinity River was just down the 18 foot bank from the railroad tracks that would later make up the Triple Overpass, before the river was moved.
