Hilltop Motel, Galveston, Texas

This image shows the Hilltop Motel in Galveston, Texas, a short distance down the coast from Corpus Christi. The swimming pool is typical of the time, with a slide for children and a diving board. As time passed, these were typically removed, as they were sources of accidents and injuries, and thus a significant cost liability for the owners.

    Hilltop motel burned down in the early 90’s. I can send pictures if you would like.
