Then and Now: Kerrville's Secor Hospital

Recently I gave a presentation at the Schreiner Mansion, where I paired historic photographs with snaps I'd taken that day with my phone.  I did this because I realized most people haven't studied area photographs as I have, and so it's sometimes confusing to know where an historic photo was taken.  So I took a copy of each historic photograph with me, and tried to find the exact spot where the old photograph was taken -- and then I took a photo with my cellphone.   Over the next few Wednesdays, I'll publish the results here.  Please feel free to share these with your friends.

The Secor Hospital.  This hospital preceded the Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital,
and was near the intersection of Sidney Baker and Main Streets in Kerrville.

I'm guessing this photo was taken in the 1920s or 1930s.
The site today.  It's the National Care Sales used car lot.
