Vintage Austin: Downtown From Above

This Vintage Austin photo from January 1963 is a great shot of downtown Austin from above.  In it you can see several recognizable landmarks.  Included are the Capitol, the UT Tower, Texas Memorial Stadium, the Congress Avenue bridge, and the start of construction for the Crest Inn (also seen in a previous Vintage Austin post).  It was completed in 1965 and located on the south east corner of Congress and Caesar Chavez.
