Austin Character

Thought I'd show you another shot from the mural on Eighth Street (on the wall beside Hickory Street Bar and Grill). This represents Leslie. Leslie is frequently seen downtown in various stages of cross/un dress. Leslie is a fixture of Austin's weirdness. He ran for mayor. He has a Wikipedia entry.

    I wonder if FFP would remember Gordon the paper"boy" (he was an old man at the time) and Bicycle Annie? Both were campus characters in the '60s.

  2. FFP says yep. I even encountered bicycle Annie after I moved here in 1975.

  4. Jerry-- I actually worked at the Co-op when Gordon was working in the stockroom. He had retired from the paper route at that point because he was allergic to the ink.
