Richardson, Texas, circa 1955--my hometown!

I spent many a Saturday afternoon in the old Ritz theater right there on Main Street in "downtown" Richardson, Texas!  The center of town back then didn't enjoy the benefit of paved streets. 
The population wasn't over 2,000, when someone snapped this photo.
Everyone knew everyone. 
My dad served as City Secretary at the time.  City Hall was a white frame building that co-located with water utilities, police and fire departments. 
It was a different time, for sure!
