Laredo History 101 : Nixon visits Laredo in September, 1972

Old Party Mayor Martin sits in back seat while Trick Dick Nixon waves to a sea of Laredoans


  1. I thought it was "Tricky Dick" ?

  2. I remember that day. We stood at the corner of Springfield and Saunders for hours (or so it seemed) and threw confetti at El Presidente as he rode by. Had I known he was a complete d-bag, I would have just played ball in the street or rode my bike instead, which is what we typically did on days the prez was not visiting la frontera.

  3. It is tricky dick, my typo. Thanks
