Come to where the Old West meets the New South! Photographer Elan Penn (From Sea to Shining Sea, Washington D.C.) and Michael W. Duty, the Executive Director of the Dallas Historical Society, present a visually enticing tour of the fascinating Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, a growing urban center that still proudly maintains its traditional cowboy roots. Here, frontier history mingles with contemporary art, and a farmer’s market thrives alongside awe-inspiring skyscrapers. Begin in historic Dallas, with its Old Red Museum and Dealey Plaza’s JFK Memorial. Visit museums, music halls, the Texas State Fair, and the Cotton Bowl, as well as the business district, cultural institutions, and the heart of higher learning. Vintage images of the cities as they were enhance Penn’s splendid photos.
