One of my favorite things about putting together old photo galleries is the opportunity to bring back memories and evoke emotion in my readers. Pictures truly are worth a thousand words. You and your parents/grandparents might have countless stories to tell about this time period, but SEEING those stories come alive is an entirely different experience. Here are 14 rare photos of Texas in the 1970s.

Do these photos bring back any memories of what life was like for you in the 1970s in Texas? Or perhaps a story told to you by your parents or grandparents? Share with us in the comments!
