Where were you in 1942?
HS regular Lauren Markaverich sent us this cool old photo. Here’s what she said about it:
My grandfather, Lemuel David Creswell, owned a camera shop back in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s on 10th and Congress called Austin Photo Supply. He passed away in 2006, and since then my family and I have slowly sifted through all the photos he took though those years when he ran the shop. I came across this one and immediately recognised the building in the forefront as my favorite spot for pie.
I thought you might enjoy a copy to show how far local business owners have come. Congress obviously looks much different now, and check out how sparse the downtown skyline was then! Thanks for making SoCo a great place all these years later. My grandfather would have loved Home Slice as much as I do.
