The Future of Blackwater

Recommended Posts

Here's an idea on the growth of the city of Blackwater, which geographically corresponds to Houston, it is a port city into cattle and oil country west of Louisiana and its layout is very similar to Texas City, Texas a industrial port suburb of Houston, also its architecture is reminiscent of that of Galveston before the 1900 Hurricane. 

 

Houston vs New Orleans population.  In 1900, Houston had a population of 45,000 while New Orleans had a population of 287,000.  Houston's population would rise gradually to 79,000 in 1910 then 138,000 in 1920 before ballooning to 292,000 in 1930 while in that time New Orleans rose to 339,000 in 1910 to 387,000 in 1920 then rising to 459,000 in 1930.  It was called "The Fastest Growing City in the South" in the 1920s.  The Great Depression temporarily put caused a dramatic slowdown on Houston's growth spurt of the 1920s increasing only to 385,000 in 1940 while New Orleans increased to 495,000.  By 1950, however, Houston would rise to 596,000 while New Orleans only rose to 570,000 perminanently becoming the largest city in the South.  In 1960, New Orleans reached its peak population of 627,000 while Houston climbed to 956,000 and kept growing.  Becoming the first city west of the Mississippi outside of Los Angeles to pass 1,000,000 in the early-1960s, then 1,500,000 in the late-1970s and 2,000,000 in the mid-2000s.  

 

The city grows southward down the coast in the 1910s, while a bridge is built crossing the Upper Montana River in 1916, before the dramatic expansion in the 1920s, by 1940 Theives Landing and Blackwater are practically the same city with Theives Landing becoming the industrial heart of West Elizabeth.  The city gets its first high rise building in 1915, then about five more in the 1920s with one completed skyscraper and one under construction by 1928.  In the 1930s and much more so in the 1940s, especially after WWII the city begins expanding westward.  By 1934 the city has its first modern airport, and is roughly the same population as Saint Denis in 1907.  In 1939, a massive tall monument is built based on the San Jacinto Monument just north of Thieves Landing.  In 1969 a new airport is built where MacFarland's Ranch used to be.
