Waco Skyline, 1912

THE ILLUSTRATED MUNICIPAL HAND BOOK OF WACO, 1912-1914

This amazing book was compiled by Mayor J. H. Mackey. The original caption is on the photo.

When this book was released in 1912, the Amicable Building was one year old, the McLennan County Courthouse was eleven years old, and the Washington Avenue Bridge was ten. Waco had a lot to be proud of, and this drawing captures much of it!

Drawn by W. E. Smith, 1010 Washington Street.
