Yes, there are beloved Austin, Texas landmarks in the Vanishing Austin photography series that are surviving, indeed, even thriving. Woot! Settle back with Queen and enjoy the show of our cherished Austin survivors. Just click any image to start a slideshow.

Yes, Austin, if there is a silver lining to all of our upscale urban development, it’s that many of our beloved touchstones, and their signs, still thrive here. ♣

      1. We’ve never been to Austin, Jann. Although we do have relatives in Texas, so I hope to make it there one day. I will definitely look forward to seeing some of those signs in person if we do get there! :o)

  1. I love these old signs. My favorite, I think, is the Red Eyed Fly; reminds me of an uncle in San Antonio who used to frequent a bar called The Fractured Fox…only he called it the Wounded Coon after a couple of drinks. And speaking of drinks I did find that Lone Star beer has 4 disbributers in California, 3 of them sort of near, so I’ll just wait until my next Texas visit.

  2. Wow! What a wonderful collection of signs and they look so good grouped together like this. I live in a fairly small town so we don’t have that many signs here.
    thanks for sharing. 🙂
