I have lived in T-Town all my life and this video of Texarkana from the 1950's gives you the feeling that this was a town destined for greatness.

It is fascinating to me to see how Texarkana looked back in the day. Having been a lifelong resident you kinda get used to how it looks now, with all the highways and new shopping centers.
In the video you get to see some of Texarkana's unmistakable landmarks and businesses. I even spotted my old middle school Westlawn in the video as well. I went to that school in the 80's and had no idea it was built so long ago. See how many of the businesses and landmarks you can identify in the video.
