Old Red Museum

I was intrigued by this building and had to stop for visit. Being that it was a public building called The Red Museum, I could go inside for a visit. To read more about the history of this building, click here.


This is the Pegasus neon sign inside the museum. The pegasus was logo for the Magnolia Petroleum Company founded in 1911. When it merged with Socony Mobil Oil Company in 1959, they became known as Mobil Oil. The pegasus symbol is still quite popular in Dallas.


This is the hallway of the museum. I really like its half-moon shaped interior.


I apologize that I have not been posting lately. Life has just been busy, but I hope to resume my posts in a few weeks. Thank you for your patience!

Very interesting building inside and out. The outside looks like something you would see in another country. I love the shot of the hallway.

AV!!!! I am so very sorry for not visiting sooner, but now that I see it has been a while since you've posted, I don't feel so bad :) I took a break from the blogging world...but I have been thinking about you and wondering how you are. I miss ya!

Email me when you get a chance. I'd love to hear from you. I hope all is OK. I'm a tiny bit worried about you cause it isn't like you to take a very long break...and its been over a month since you posted.

Hope all is well. Love your pics, as usual. I just got back from Glacier National Park and other places on our vacation. I'm now posting pics. You'll have to check it out if you get the chance. I know you'll appreciate some of them!
