Cattle Pens, Schreiner Street, Kerrville

I'm not 100% sure, but I think these pens were on Schreiner Street, near the railroad tracks in downtown Kerrville.  These photos were taken by Starr Bryden, and shared with all of us by Lanza Teague (who has her own interesting blog, Sylvan Lampworks.)
If my guess is correct, ranchers would bring their cattle into town, unload them in these pens, and ship them by rail to market.  I remember seeing these pens as a small boy, near the intersection of Schreiner and Hays streets, running toward Sidney Baker Street.

Doesn't that look like the City Yard behind the longhorns?
