Vintage Austin: Eliza Spring Pool

This Vintage Austin photo includes a pair of ladies relaxing at Eliza Spring Pool.  The amphitheater was built by Andrew Zilker as a meeting place for the Elks Club.  The pool is no longer a swimming hole but instead serves as a safe habitat for the endangered Barton Springs & Austin Blind Salamanders.  The public can visit the spring and the Beverly Sheffield Education Center to learn more about the spring and its aquatic life.
