Vintage Austin: Congress Bridge

The vantage point for this Vintage Austin photo is near the present-day Austin American Statesman building looking north.  In the photo you can see a horse drawn carriage on the bridge, the Capitol, and the frame of the Scarborough building, Austin’s first tower.  Located at 6th & Congress it stood eight-stories tall and is still there today.
