Just like you, I was not alive in Tyler, Texas 100 years ago. I’m sure the town looked great as it was growing and developing but things look quite different now. I’m guessing that the traffic on Broadway has increased over the past 100 years, but that is just my assumption. But I was a bit curious and wanted to know what Tyler, TX was known for 10 years ago? So, I did a little research and found out. 

Like most people I wanted to know if Tyler was known for the same things that it’s known for now. And why would people back in 1924 want to be here in East Texas. And while Tyler is not a gigantic city in Texas it’s fun to know what shaped the identity of our town in East Texas.
