I recall the flame atop the EPNG building from as early as the late 1950s when my father went to work for the company. I hope the flame continues as it is part of El Paso for many people who not only live there, but even for travelers who simply pass through the downtown area.

One other relic of the EPNG days, not seen by many EL Pasoans is/was a massive ship bearing the name of the man who founded El Paso Natural Gas Company, Paul Kayser. My YouTube link shows a short film I made when this ship first entered US waters when she brought her first load of LNG in from Algeria.

The weather globe on top of the building is what I remember most of El Paso. During the summer that beautiful globe looked like a color diamond in the sky. It meant so much to me. I hope it is still there? I live in California now but grew up in the Segundo Barrio during the 50's. Mickey
