- Yes, the photos are yours to use.
The coordinates are 29 degrees 31'.36.68" N and 95 degrees 48' 19.98" W
You'll find it not far from the crossroad intersection of Hwy 59 and Hwy 36. Drive south about 1/4 mile and make a left into the Armory driveway. The tank sits dead ahead in front of the building. There are other vehicles parked behind the Armory.
There is also a 105 Howitzer at the VFW located 1 mile north on Hwy 36 at Walger Ave and Hwy 36.
In about 1949/50, there was a Sherman at the old Armory in Rosenberg on 529 at junction of Hwy 36/90/90a and Spur 529 (old Hwy 59). I had forgotten about that Sherman until just now. When we drove 7 miles into town, we passed the tank. One day Daddy stopped. He climbed inside but I was only allowed to look inside. I will ask around for photos of that tank. It was also used as an exibit at the Fort Bend County Fair and I do believe they drove it along the parade route. Time to do some checking. Wish I had asked more questions when I was young...
