Airport Terminal Building - Fort Worth, Texas

[I first identified this as the terminal building at the old Great Southwest Regional Airport, near present day DFW Airport. I was notified that this information was incorrect.]

The photo of the Airport terminal in Ft. Worth (that you had previously identified as Greater Southwest Airport) is the old terminal at Meacham Field. It was in existance in the 1940's when my father was a flight instructor there and was still the same in the 1960's. I am not sure when it was demolished to build the new terminal.

Hello, I enjoyed the pictures of old Ft. Worth postcards. As to the identity of the Air Terminal building picture, it's at Meacham Field. Here's another picture: http://www.crsmithmuseum.org/AAhistory/AA_text.htm
