Historic Kerr County photographs available!

Can you guess where this building was?

Huntington Photography Studio, Kerrville, possibly as early as 1898.
This little photography studio stood on a site which would someday be very prominent -- can you guess where it stood?  Some friends brought this image by and I thought it might make a good puzzle for you.

I think the house next door is Hance Burney's home.  Burney was Kerrville's first postmaster, and he opened the first little store in Kerrville, too.  Perhaps the Huntington Photography Studio was previously Burney's little store.

So... put on your thinking caps...  what street does the studio face, and what street runs along beside the studio?  And for bonus points, what is there today?

Please put your answer in the comments section below.

  3. Yikes!!!

    This is one of the most difficult puzzles that you have ever asked us to solve.

    I'm clueless. At least that's what my wife says about me. :)
