There’s a lot to be said about hair and football in the Big D. But history? Lost Dallas, a new exhibit mounted by the Dallas Center for Architecture, considers the historic buildings and places that were demolished during the city’s rapid, oil-fueled rise. One such example is the 1939 Good Luck Gas Station, shown, which was an Art Deco icon destroyed in 1982, despite economic incentives offered to the landowners. Featuring images from private and public collections, as well as from The Dallas Morning News archives, “Lost Dallas” takes a look back at a city that was only founded in 1841, but has pressed relentlessly forward ever since.
