  18. Innovative thinking in the face of a budget crisis in the late 1950s, led the City of Kerrville to hire a "non-traditional" workforce to fill positions throughout the city. Pictured here is Kerrville's "non-traditional fire brigade," which disbanded at the end of summer break. Enforcement of child labor laws eventually put an end to this experimental program.
