The president of a local real estate organization is hoping Swamplot readers can help her put together a slide show illustrating changes that have taken place over the years to the Washington Ave streetscape. How many of you have access to really old photos of Washington Ave? Well, you probably don’t have to go back too far to find images of a street that looked rather different than it does today. Send your old images — and please include captions and credit info — to the Swamplot tipline, and we’ll forward them to CCIM Houston/Gulf Coast‘s Ann-Marie Daleo, for inclusion in that organizations’ Washington Corridor Overview and Networking Event on November 4th. Daleo promises she’ll post the presentation online after the event, for anyone to download. And if any good before-and-after views come out of it we’ll post them here as well.

I’m sure the Houston Metropolitan Research Center downtown would have some photos of use for this project.
I like that ’63 (?) Bel Air.
I had a roommate in the late 60’s who drove a ’64 BelAir. It was a tank but it had a smooth ride. All 4 of us roomies could get in it with plenty of room to spare.
I hope the new photos show all the douchebags and faux hipsters that populate washington ave nowadays.
