An art installation in Deep Ellum, a neighborhood composed largely of arts and entertainment venues near downtown in Old East Dallas, Texas
. The area was originally called Deep Elm, but the pronunciation Deep Ellum by early residents led to its current and historically accepted name. As one of Dallas's first commercial districts for African-Americans and European immigrants, Deep Ellum is one of the most historically significant neighborhoods in the city. The district boasts the city's largest collection of commercial storefronts from the early 20th century and includes many individual structures significant in their own right. In 1914, Henry Ford selected Deep Ellum as the site for one of his earliest automobile plants. Photo by Carol Highsmith.
