Now, the Blue Bonnet Hotel looking toward Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital -- 1956
If you were to climb the Blue Bonnet Hotel and take a photograph of the downtown Kerrville area in 1956, pointing your camera toward the Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital -- this is what you would see. This photo was taken during the county's centennial by Starr Bryden.
Extra credit: how can I tell this photo was taken around 1956?
