Newly found photo of the Tivy Hotel

I'm sure others have seen this image of the Tivy Hotel, but it's new to me.  This hotel was built by Capt. Joseph A. Tivy, Kerrville's first mayor.  When it was built it faced Main Street; in the 1930s it was moved to its current location, at the back of the lot, and facing Tivy Street.

  1. That is a great photo of the old Tivy Hotel.

    When it was moved so that it no longer faced Main Street, was it truly moved?

    Or, was it remodeled so that the front door was moved from the Main Street side of the building to the Tivy Street side?

    1. It was moved. A recent column tells the story: http://joeherringjr.blogspot.com/2012/05/journey-of-tivy-hotel.html
