VOX POPULI Giving Back With Style
Sydney and Ruben Caballero are a brand new husband-and-wife team, and the founders of the new Houston Heights-based t-shirt line, Vox Populi (voks pop-yuh-lahy), which is Latin for “voice of the people”. The couple was inspired by the pain and division they saw in the world around them, and they wanted to find a way to spread love and positivity, while giving back to communities in need. From this, they created their line of inspirational clothing.
|Houston's Lost History:
The Downtown Flood of 1935
People tend to forget we live in a swamp. Houston wasn't considered very habitable until the invention of air conditioning. We used to lead the nation in cases of yellow fever and cholera, and we had frequent cases of malaria well into the 50's. The large number of bayous has been a constant source of flooding, the Flood Control District starting converting the bayous in the 1950's from muddy rivers to the managed culverts you see today.
