Culled from Houston area yearbooks, focusing primarily on those on the South and East side, these are a few ads that were ahead of their time, running photos with their advertisements. (Most stuck with the tried and true business card model before the 1960s.)
I tripped over the Houston aerial in the decidedly NOT-SE area Reagan book looking for my father-in-law.
I tried to keep the captions in place where possible, but since yearbooks tend to create a very washed-out photo, restoring a level of contrast for details meant I sometimes had to crop the frames to get a decent view.
Primarily from Pasadena H.S., Austin H.S., & La Porte H.S.
Houston aerial found in Reagan H.S. yearbook 1954
street scene found in Lee yearbook 1957
Out in La Porte, which had a striking number of photographs in their advertising section!
