View from atop the University of Texas Tower at UT.
This was 2 years before Charles Whitman made his stand at the tower.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. True that if the skyscrapers were there I would have seen the error. I flipped photo to correct the view.

I live in Austin and something struck me as off about this photo. I then realized it is inverted. From this view the building on the left with the flying saucer shaped roof (Palmer Auditorium) should be over on the right side of the frame. Interesting view from 64 though. The area south of the Capital is full of skyscrapers now.
