1904 Visitors to the St. Charles Hotel, Kerrville

The St. Charles Hotel was a grand hotel at the corner of Water and Tchoupitoulas streets in Kerrville. (Tchoupitoulas Street is now called Sidney Baker Street.)  The same corner later was the site off the Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital.
While many images of the old hotel exist, there are few showing visitors to the hotel.  A few years ago, Lanza Teague let me scan some images of a traveler's scrapbook which included photogaphs of the St. Charles, Pampell's, and other places from 1905 Kerrville, and showed tourists to Kerrville from that era.  These images, and over 200 others, are in my book.
