Polly Smith: A Texas Journey

In 1936 Polly Smith, a 27-year-old photographer, undertook her first professional assignment, to photographically record the entire state of Texas.

She crisscrossed the state by air, rail, and car to illustrate all of Texas for America. Her work was presented at the 1936 Centennial Exhibition and is a permanent part of the Hall of State.

The entire remaining body of her work from that laborious journey is held in the Dallas Historical Archives and is the basis for this exhibit. Presented by the Dallas Historical Society.
