This is again an aerial view of Dallas taken around 1923. The Commerce Street bridge is in the lower center, and to the left of that is the buildings that would later make up Dealey Plaza. Note the railroad track that curves from Pacific Ave., around the “Southern Rock Island Plow” company building (later TSBD). These were the “Main Street” tracks, and the dirt road that they ran beside, in front of the buildings that would later make up Dealey Plaza (center front), was called Broadway. Dallas does not have a street named Broadway today, which is rare for an American city.
