Apropos of nothing, here’s a shot from above Central Expressway at Walnut Hill looking south, taken in 1959. That building near the top, in the dead center of the photo, and along the east side of the road is the Meadows Building at Lovers Lane. The cloverleaf just below that is Northwest Highway. This is the landscape Ray Nasher saw when he visualized NorthPark Center.
(Hat tip in-house to Cynthia who sent the pic.)
