Did you know there once was an USNS Harris County?
USNS Harris County (T-LST-822) was an LST-542-class tank landing ship built for the United States Navy during World War II. Named for counties in Georgia and Texas, she was the only U.S. Naval vessel to bear the name.
USS LST-822 was laid down by the Missouri Valley Bridge & Iron Company of Evansville, Indiana on 20 September 1944; launched on 1 November 1944; and commissioned at New Orleans, Louisiana on 23 November 1944 with Lieutenant R. N. Mclntyre in command.

While looking for an interesting historic Houston photo, I ran across one for Cleburne, Texas. Cleburne is about 18 miles south from where I’m typing this and is the County Seat for Johnson County, (south of Fort Worth, Texas).
The Johnson County Courthouse can be seen in the upper left corner of the photo and still stands, drove by it just last week. The photo dates from the late 1800’s.
Along side the historic photo is a more modern view, no horses and lots of cars! View is to the west, same as the historic photo.
