Hello and welcome if this is your first time to visit!  This blog began in 2009 as a way to share Tulsa memories and history with others.  It was (and is!) a joy to know it is still being read and enjoyed by many, as well as being used by local students. While I have moved on to other projects,  I plan on leaving this blog here for as long as possible. Thanks to spammers, I do have to monitor all comments, so it may take a minute for those to show up. I know that searching for subjects on here can be difficult (I wasn’t the best at labeling things then) so please, if you are looking for something in particular that you can’t find, DO use that little search bar in the farthest upper left hand corner; type in the word(s) you are looking for and cross your fingers!  In the meantime, I do hope you enjoy the journey.   Nancy aka Tulsa Gal

You might want to look into book mentioned below as it has wonderful photos of Tulsa theatres (Lyric, Main Street, 2nd Rialto, Ritz, and Wonderland) that you may want to include on your fun web site.
Tulsa Downtown Public Library has online images of the 1927 book “TULSA, THE CITY BEAUTIFUL”. Page 233 shows sharp photographs of the (2nd) Rialto Theatre auditorium and lobby, and Main Street Theatre;

It's been great going through your blog of photos and stories - do you have an email address I could reach out to you?

Doing some historical housing work in Tulsa and would love to see if you knew of any good resources outside of the Tulsa Historical Society- thanks!

Hi I grew up at this time and lived at this park.
Great memories. I lived at 14th and Cincinnati Pl. I went to LIncoln elementary Horace Mann Jr. High and graduated from Central in 1967. Someone send me the picture of the tee pee with the kids in front of it. My sister is the indian setting down in front and I am in the tee pee standing at the back. I don't remember this picture being taken but I feel so lucky to have a copy of it.

Hello, my name is Libby Fielder. My mother was Louise Archer. She was one of Anna Mowbray Archer's granddaughters. Mom died in 1993. I really enjoyed the articles about the Mowbray/Archer family! Perhaps you can help clear up a mystery. I was told that TJ Archer was half Cherokee, but I can't find any evidence of it. Did you ever run across this? Thanks!

Do you have any knowledge of a restaurant or night club in the late 40's or very early 50's located on Admiral Pl, south side of the street, just west of Yale Ave about the area of where you would enter to Rose Hill across the street?
