Merry Christmas, T.B. Baker

A contact recently provided me with a great old color photograph of 1920s Texas hotel magnate T.B. Baker at Christmas-time.  My best guess is that it was taken in the mid-sixties.  Here he is – around 1910 (~age 35) and around 1965 1958 (age 83).

Cheers to the hope that his Grand Old Lady will finally be restored in the new year.

    The Christmas photo was taken at my parent’s house in San Antonio around 1958.

        Sheri Glover is my sister.  I will try to get that video copied and will contact you about getting an address to send it to.  It is pretty good with info from people that worked at the baker.  Uncle Pete has always held a special place in my heart and knowing his love of the Mineral Wells Baker it too holds a very special place.  I will definitely be at the re-opening.  I’ll be in touch.  Thanks for keeping us updated.
