Austin circa 1937

I looooove looking at old photos of cities, don't you?   My mom sent me this old photo of Austin that she found in my grandmother's pictures recently.  We can't really place where it is. She thinks it was taken in 1937, and she said maybe from the Capitol looking west, but it looks a little too high of a perspective for me. Maybe the UT tower? Or maybe from a plane, because my grandparents were pilots and flew around here a lot.  That Victorian in the front of the photo looks familiar, but I can't place it. Anyone want to guess?
