Cement City Aerial Photo

Dallas Public Library has this photo online:

Dated October 10 1925.

A key landmark, still seen on maps today, is the railroad spur that swings south under the plant.

During the early decades of its development, Cement City was considered a separate town with its own PO designation by the post office.

From what I've read, I tend to think the governor's mansion was about 1/4 mile south and east of the plant as shown in this photo, but there are few geographical markers to show where the bluffs were.
