Parade, 600 Block of Water Street, Kerrville

My block of Water Street -- the 600 block, where the print shop stands -- rarely gets in photographs.  This parade was an exception.  I'm guessing it was taken in the late 1940s or early 1950s.  Let me know if you recognize anyone.  The lead marchers are about in front of the old Rialto Theatre.

  1. Joe, The picture is Company D, 36th Infantry Battalion of the Texas Defense Guard. The Company Commander is Captain H. A. Moore (Superintendent of Schools). Directly behind him is my Dad, H. N. (Jack) Stevens who was the First Sergeant. I'd guess the time was 1942. Our meeting place was upstairs in the old downtown Schreiner Wool and Mohair House. Brings back lots of personal memories as I joined the T. D. G. in June 1942 and served until discharged (as First Sergeant) in June 1943 to go on active duty.

  2. Joe, I tried to respond to this picture yesterday but can't verify that you ever got my comment. The picture must be from 1942 and shows Company D, 36th Infantry Battalion of the Texas Defense Guard. Leading is CAPT H. A. Moore (Superintendent of Schools) the gent directly behind him is my Dad, H. N. (Jack) Stevens who, at the time was First Sergeant of the Company. I joined the Company in 1942 and stayed about a year until I went on active duty. Have lots of stories about the Guard Company. Our "armory" was upstairs in the downtown Schreiner Wool and Mohair House.Jack M Stevens
