Photo Courtesy of Angie Bownds

Traces of Texas reader Angie Bownds shared this remarkable 1910 photo of Galloway’s “Little Gem Confectionery & Ice Cream Parlor” on 4th Street between Sullivan and Patricio in Skidmore. “This photo is almost a perfect, surreal, and dreamlike vision of what a store would look like 105 years ago in Texas. And the cast of assembled characters and the way there are dressed is fantastic, too!

Thank you, Angie. Truly a stunning image!”
