Where they lived: Kerrville homes, 1930s, part 2

I thought I'd offer a series of photographs of Kerrville homes from around 1930.   These were taken by the City of Kerrville, as part of their property tax roster.  There are two things to look for in these images: the architecture, of course, and then for clues about the people who lived in these homes.  Rockers on a porch, for instance.  A pet.  Flowers planted by the sidewalk.  Those sorts of things.

  1. The last photo is 324 Clay Street.

    I used Google Map to find it, and it still exists.

    I love the architecture from that era.

    Thanks Joe.

  2. In total, it looks as if the houses at:

    204 H Street, 248 Travis and 324 Clay still exist.

    The house at 233 Schreiner, I'm not certain.
    Google Map shows a house that is very similar to the one in the old photo, except the tops of the two roof lines are a little different.

    I couldn't find 317 Clay Street, so I suspect that it gave way to progress.
