Photos
Houston, Texas
1978 - 1979
Courtesy of the Botts Collection

I scanned these from a file of photos, none were identified, and most had "cropping tape" on them,
for use in publishing in the paper. Therefore some have a gummy residue on them, from being stacked for over 35 years.

I need help ID-ing them. If you can provide a name or event, please email me with the photo number and info, Thanks!
