ALICO circa 1920

Based on a photograph by Frederich “Gildy” Gildersleeve (1881-1958) now in the collection of Baylor University, Waco, Texas, used by permission. The Amicable Life Insurance Company building has been a Waco, Texas landmark since1900. I prefer the way it looks in this 1920’s scene with the people in their Sunday best, the old fashioned cars, and most of the windows open to catch a breeze. If you look closely you can even see a cat lazy sleeping in one of the windows.
