Incomplete de-Dowlingization, Incomplete Emancipation, in the Third Ward

4700 Emancipation Ave.

PERHAPS A LITTLE CONFUSION IS A GOOD THING --  
IT MAY MAKE FOLK WONDER WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT 

Wrong Signal: Dowling Next - Not any more 

How many people even knew who Dowling was prior to the controversy and the campaign for street- rebranding? - It's been a long time for sure. 

The Holiday Clock Stopped Long Ago - Time for a reboot. 
No longer paying homage to Civil War Figure Dowling - Emancipated Neighborhood

  1. I was taught (in a public Texas school in the mid-60's) about what a big hero Dick Dowling was for fending off the Yankees at Sabine Pass. Since I grew up in the Golden Triangle area (not too many outside of it know it, sort of like Dowling), in retrospect it seems like that sort of 'local boy done good' story you see on the news so much.
