Photos from the Library’s Austin History Center depict Austin’s early Mexican and Mexican American business and cultural community downtown between Congress Avenue and the banks of Shoal Creek. This community moved to Austin’s eastside in the 1930s, largely a result of the 1928 City Plan for Austin, which suggested that the city segregate minority communities.
