Austin’s new 737 area code debuted on June 1, underscoring the rapid growth that the Austin area has been experiencing for more than two decades. Regardless of how one quantifies the indicators of economic growth across wide-ranging and diverse sectors of industry, the advent of a second area code is a sure sign of an expanding economy and population growth. In recognition of this “achievement,” Environmental Prose thought it would be interesting to observe Austin’s growth from a different perspective – one viewed through the lens of historical aerial imagery in the form of a slideshow. Enjoy!
