I remember that in the late 50's and 60's all the mail for the City of Ysleta was delivered to my father's office at 106 S Zaragosa. He was the local Justice of the Peace and about the only elected official still in Ysleta after the big annexation by El Paso. He got mail addressed to the Mayor, and Chief of Police and any other official that no longer existed in Ysleta. The locals still met for lunch at the Kopper Kettle Restraunt on Alameda and all complained about the land grab by El Paso. They all had a lot of pride in their little town.

I would like to read more about the "great expansion in 1955", or "land grab".
