Go back to the fifties and  meet the Texas version of Wee Gee … Marvin Zindler. Street violence and characters from Houston’s past are captured with a certain flare, lost today.

For decades, Marvin Zindler was known in Houston and throughout the world as KTRK-TV’s flamboyant consumer affairs reporter and advocate for the indigent. However, what many do not know is that during the early 1950s, Zindler prowled Houston’s streets as a newspaper photographer covering the crime beat. Working for the now-defunct daily Houston Press, Zindler caught Houstonians at their most vulnerable. Crime suspects, robbery victims, socialites, wayward juveniles and even domestic violence victims were captured in unflinching detail.

Now through August 13, 2011
