Throwback Thursday: Dealer's choice

By Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian & College Archivist

Pearson Ford, 1220 Polk Avenue, circa 1949.
South Texas College of Law moved to our current location in February, 1964. The building had previously housed Pearson Ford. We originally leased the first floor, sharing the building with an insurance company and a drapery firm. South Texas later purchased the building and over the next few decades remodeled and expanded it to our current physical plant. The fact remains, however, that according to this picture, our student lounge used to be the dealership's showroom.
