Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Houston Astrodome …

with 2 comments

This is a photo my father made of the Houston Astrodome on a trip we made back in the 1960’s to visit some friends of ours.  The sky-line of Houston has really changed since this photograph was taken … at least 10 or more skyscrapers are on the horizon now.   I have been to several baseball games at the Dome over the years, all back in the 60’s and I can remember how much fun it was.   I had been to several games in Chicago to see the Cubs and the White Sox play when we went to visit my dad’s brother, Ben, and I really enjoyed those games so seeing the Astros was a real thrill.  Anyone want to make a comment about the AstroDome, feel free.

  1. In the foreground is AstroWorld, an amusement park, no longer exists. Between the Dome and Astrosworld is the AstroHall and Convention center. Parking for AstroWorld was in the lot for the Astro Dome. A tram would pick-up customers and transport across the bridge over the 610 loop for entry into the park.
    See; Judge Roy Hofheinz for further info concerning this area.
