Captain Schreiner's greenhouse.

The maps I'm always mentioning -- Sanborn-Perris maps -- show a greenhouse next to Captain Charles Schreiner's house, where the post office was later built, on the site now occupied by the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center.  I've often wondered about the greenhouse -- and, thanks to James Partain -- I now can see what his greenhouse looked like.

  1. These photos are absolutely fascinating.
    I love them.

    ... More please ...

    Does Mr. Partain have any 1950 - 1960 photos of the Kerrville Ice Plant?
