Then and Now: the Tivy Hotel

One of the things I like to do with my old photos of Kerrville and Kerr County is compare old images with new images.  These are of the entrance to the Tivy Hotel.  I believe the first image was from around 1892; the second I took Saturday, October 9, 2010.

If anyone has an idea who this family is, I'd  like to know.
