July 10th, 2012– Boarding houses, World War II and the end of the good life in old East Dallas
East Dallas was once full of desirable neighborhoods for families in stylish houses, but 50 years later it was so blighted that only the heartiest urban pioneers ventured into those homes. The key events of the 20th century--the Depression, the war and even the prosperity of the 1950s--all contributed to ending life as East Dallas families once knew it.
