While we were in Dallas we visited Fair Park. It was constructed in 1936 for the Texas Centenary celebration, and its vast array of Art Deco architecture is very reminiscent of the Century of Progress, of which nothing survives, of course. But Fair Park is all still there, and it is absolutely stunning.
This is just a selection of the pictures I took. I could not get enough of the Esplanade, it was like stepping back in time 80 years.
In the middle of the park is the Cotton Bowl. The last time I was here I was four years old. All I remember clearly is that my father and I went out onto the field and pretended to run for a touchdown. Soon after that, I managed to fall into the lagoon and get covered with mud. He was really mad.
