From Sam Houston Statue

Steps lead to and from Sam Houston Monument, located behind the camera, in this scene.  The statue is an impressive commemoration honoring an individual of huge  significance in the state's history. 

A Red Line train crosses in the medium distance.  Beyond that is the Mecom Fountain.  Montrose St., which recedes beyond there, is the first major cross artery along the Red Line that is oriented on a true north-south basis.
