Vintage Austin: Zilker Park

In this Vintage Austin photo from 1938, we can clearly see Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, and several of the park roadways. While the park is how we know it today, this photo predates the construction of Longhorn Dam (completed in 1960), so beyond the main field of Zilker we simply see the riverbed of the Colorado.
