This very old postcard, labeled “Austin Avenue” was never mailed, so we don’t know the exact date. But written on the sidebar is “ The most prosperous and finest street in Waco. Here, all the best stores are located. The larger structure at the end of the street is the court house”.
Note: Notice the street car tracks, and the street car in the distance. The larger building at the end of the street is the old Waco City Hall.
