Throwback Thursday: American Airlines’ Fort Worth ticket office

Remember when you had to purchase airline tickets at a ticket office or the airport?

Here’s an undated photo of American Airlines’ ticket office located in the Blackstone hotel in downtown Fort Worth, including this caption:

“Above is a view of American Airlines’ new downtown ticket office in the Blackstone hotel, seen through the window which faces the hotel interior. This office, the largest and most up-to-date in the Southwest, also has a street entrance at 603 Main St., with a large front footage. Doubling the previous size, the new office has the latest equipment for speedy communication and passenger convenience and comfort, in line with the greatly increased passenger business being given American Airlines by Fort Worthers.”

I’m guessing the speedy communication, meant a telephone line versus the Interent.
