Vintage Austin: Bull Creek

Dated 1936, the falls of Bull Creek.  The back of the photo reads, “The high falls near ‘Slanting Rock’ swimming hole in upper Bull Creek.  This shows about half of the falls.”  I assume the creek has morphed since the 1930s so I’m not sure which falls this photo is actually referencing as there are several along Bull Creek today.  Head out for a hike and decide for yourself which falls you think are in this photo!
