Fair Park, Dallas

Fair Park, Dallas. Finished in 1936 for the Texas Centennial Exhibition, this park has the largest collection of art deco buildings in the world. Along the Esplanade there are 6 statues of women representing the nations that once ruled Texas. Along one side are Texas, the Confederacy and Spain. Along the opposite side are Mexico, France and the United States. This statue represents United States

I happened upon your site through the moleskin world. I am fascinated by your style and these are my favorite aspect of Fair Park. The ornamented exteriors, from the Esplanade to the Hall of State, are visual treasures. You have done what I always wanted to, capture these lovely ladies. Well done.. I look forward to seeing more as you journey.
