Stepping back in time to the roaring 1920’s on Guadalupe Street, Austin, TX! This photo, sourced from the Austin History Center, is from 1927 approximately where the present-day “The Drag” is located. In this photo, we see the west side of Guadalupe Street with cars parked next to the Texas Bookstore, University Co-Op, and Roach Brothers pharmacy. Today, this iconic street continues to have a lively mix of diverse local businesses, stores, and cafes catering to both University of Texas Students and the city's residents.
