Throwback Thursday: Love Field in 1960

Star-Telegram archives

It was a quiet Sunday at Dallas Love Field in 1960.

This aerial photo shows the terminal and runways of the airport closest to downtown Dallas.

And since I was out at Love Field today, shooting photos of Southwest Airlines planes taking off and landing at the airport, I find it interesting that Southwest’s headquarters is nowhere to be seen in this photo. After all, Southwest wasn’t even fighting its legal battles to start service at Love Field.
