Vanished Houston Landmarks
by Mark Lardas

Soft cover, $23.99


Galveston Bookshop will host a book signing on Saturday, March 28th, 2020, 2:00-4:00 p.m. for returning author Mark Lardas and his newest local history centering on Houston’s ever disappearing past.

Although it is sometimes called a town without a history, Houston actually possesses the kind of sprawling past that includes a frontier port, a moon landing and a supermarket that contributed to the fall of the Soviet Union. In fact, there is so much history that much has been forgotten. This book visits the landmarks of that neglected heritage, from the Cotton Exchange to Astroworld. Dropping in on legendary spots like Shamrock and Gilley’s Club, Mark Lardas tells the stories of a Houston that has largely disappeared from the public eye.

Mark Lardas is a Houston resident and author of numerous books on maritime, naval, and Texas history. He is a frequent contributor of book reviews to the Galveston Daily News.
