HILL’S CAFE, Is located in Austin at 4700 South Congress Avenue and was first opened in 1941. When I was a teenager, we would cruse Congress avenue and Guadalupe Streets and often end up at Hill’s for a Hamburger Steak in the wee hours of the morning. The owners daughter drove a Thunderbird and was usually there (she wasn’t a Blonde but blonde hair shows up better in a painting. Hill’s was much smaller in the 1950’s but the sign hasn’t changed. This view shows the part of Hill’s I remember from the 1950’s. - GEORGE BOUTWELL
