Welcome to Rachel Ruth Photography. These images were taken in Cisco, Texas, at an old abandoned pool and zoo. Back in its hay day, Cisco was a bustling petroleum town. Over the years, the towns population has dwindled. Back in the 1920s to early 70s, there was a pool that was the go-to spot and near the pool was a zoo. We were told that the zoo was actually more of a place to lodge the animals from the Ringling Brothers Circus, since the old railroad went right through Cisco.
In the early 1970s, the pool shut down, and well…here are some images taken forty years later.
