When I first lived in Austin to go to UT in the summer of 1968, it seemed like a mecca and the place in Texas I wanted to be. I've lived there also from 1969-1971, 1973-1978, 1980-present. The images below were taken downtown in the 1980s. I've also compiled a list of the places I've lived in Austin.
