The Jay and Kay Eshbach Foundation has graciously lent 108-year-old pieces of the USS Texas Battleship’s hull to the Baytown Sun and Texas First Bank on Rollingbrook Drive, where they will be on display for the next 30 days. A model of the dreadnought is also on display at the Sun, showing what the ship looked like around 1915. Eshbach is chair of the Bring the Battleship to Baytown Committee, a group attempting to have the historic ship brought to Bayland Island after it undergoes repairs in Galveston. Eshbach added that he has a few more battleship pieces and if you would like one for your office lobby, contact him at 281-744-7238. Pictured are, at the Baytown Sun, Eshbach, left, and Matt Hollis, assistant managing editor of the Sun. Also pictured from left at Texas First Bank, is Liz Webb, banking center manager, and Mike Wilson, Texas First Bank senior vice president.
