Welcome to the Carbon-izer Features. These are page-based projects that may or may not be updated but are too big for a single blog post or something. The biggest page on here used to be a page on the Northwest Freeway, but it has been outsourced to another blog entirely.
Where in the World But AstroWorld - A detailed theme park guide describing this defunct Houston amusement park.
For Whom The Southwestern Bell Tolls - On January 1, 1984, a new company was founded to handle AT&T's Southwestern Bell Company, Southwestern Bell Corporation. Just how big did Southwestern Bell Corporation really get?
The Galleria - I first went to The Galleria in Houston, TX, and it was one of the more enjoyable day trips I've gone on in my life. This includes a large directory of how The Galleria appeared in 2003.
Rattlers - In which I discuss a defunct convenience store chain that is destined to be converted to 7-Eleven within the next few years.
The Greatest Hypermarket I Never Knew - A brief page on the Auchan hypermarket chain in Houston, TX.
In Search of a Mansard Roof McDonald's - I searched for, and found, one of the rapidly-disappearing unaltered "mansard roof" McDonald's restaurants.
Last Days of Zachry Engineering Center - Photos and videos of one of the last great 1970s buildings at Texas A&M University.
The Commons Companion - Additional photos and information from a great "Brazos Buildings & Businesses" post. More to come soon.
The U.S.S. Lexington - A look at a brochure from when I visited Corpus Christi over 16 years ago.
The Rad Project - This one isn't actually mine, it's a mirror of The Rad Project, which is now offline. A new page may be created to host Mirrors in the future.
Old Roads of Brazos County - Originally part of Brazos Buildings & Businesses, I hope to someday expand this a bit more to cover old Highway 6.
Splashtown Tribute - This was a page I created a long time ago (fall 2009) about the history of Splashtown in Spring, TX. It's obviously out of date and I don't have plans to update it, but it's here anyway.
