SORRY FOR ALL THE POST BUT THE FORUM ONLY LET YOU PUT 4 PHOTOS PER POST:
A while back I posted a post in this forum reminiscing about what I could remember about the boom years from 1979-1982.
This post proved to be quite popular so in that vain I am updating it.
As a teenage during those times and one who was really excited about all the new things happening in Midland I started to cut out all the articles from MRT about everything new that was being built in Midland/Odessa area. (mostly Midland thou..in those days there was quite a rivalry between the two cities). Anyway. I lost those articles and the notebook that kept them until just recently.
Most of these are going on 30years old now and have yellowed with time. Please remember these were cut out by a 13 to 17 year kid so some of the articles werent perfectly cut out. But I hope you enjoy looking back as much as I did.
I will be adding the photos and articles to this post of the next several days as there are 127 of them.
