Historical photos

Several years ago, I digitized a trove of photos TxDOT's San Antonio office discovered in their archives and, with their permission, am able to post those photos here for your enjoyment along with several others obtained from TxDOT's library in Austin, from planning documents found in local libraries, and a few photos borrowed from other sources.

New photos and pages are added periodically, so check back for updates!
