The city was originally Goose Creek Texas.Via Texas State Historical Association Online:
Actual consolidation of the Tri-Cities began when Pelly annexed unincorporated Baytown under the rules of home-rule charter on December 7, 1945. The population of Goose Creek was 9,928, and by the annexation that of Pelly became 11,030-large enough to annex Goose Creek under state law. After a legal struggle, consolidation became a reality on January 24, 1948. With the adoption of the new charter of the city of Baytown, Goose Creek ceased to exist as a separate town.

Weston Davis: “When we remodeled the old Texan Theater for Cork Grinders the original facade was delapidated and literally falling down. The back of the original facade and the upper deck can still be seen in the building. The original rafters are still in place along with the original brick inside wall. The vast majority of the wood used to build the bathrooms, kitchen, and bar were re-used from the demolition of the original parts of the building that were is disrepair.”

I added three 30's -40’s photos of the Egyptian sign that spanned the street. Still searching for other info on it. And whether Broadway was originally Main Street. I will delete the photos if it turns out it was for another business called The Egyptian in Coos Bay.
I added a circa 1956 photo of the car dealer that preceded the Roxy, courtesy of Anthony R. Chatham.
