Where they lived: Kerrville homes, 1930s, part 7


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. Using Google Map, I couldn't find any of these houses.

    I don't know where the Cage and Evertson additions are located and therefore couldn't search for them. They may still exist.

  2. It's surprising how many of these homes still exist. It would be fun to do a "then and now" photos.
