Where they lived: Kerrville homes, 1930s, part 6

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. Google Map shows that the houses at 820 Robinson and 941 Bulwer still exist.

    In reference to the buildings that are located at 900 Water Street (behind the Catholic Church), I believe that one of those buildings housed a tire retread business in the 1940's or 1950's.
