Houston's Ever-Changing Cityscape

Last Sunday, 70 years of history disappeared in ten seconds.  What was once the downtown Houston Foley's (and later Macy's) department store was demolished in ten seconds to make way for an office tower. Foley's opened its doors in the 1940s and was a popular place to shop for many Houston locals. Its popularity as a shopping destination slowly declined as the decades passed and the land was purchased by an outside company. It is just one of many changes to the downtown Houston landscape through the years. If you're curious about Houston's architectural history, these books will lead you on a tour back down the streets of the past.
