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 (and they aren’t waiting to see the bats fly!), 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.
