Growing up in the Dallas, Texas area during the 1970s' through the
very early 90s', Six Flags Over Texas always was a real treat to go to. Although the park has changed alot since I was a small
child, the park is still one of my favorites.
Many thanks go out to Darryl for the use of his early 1970's postcards.
