A bird's eye view of Kerrville over time

Whether perched on top of the tallest hotel (before 1890, that would be the Tivy Hotel), or on the side of a hill (usually one south of the river), or, later, by airplane, shots of Kerrville from the viewpoint of a flying bird have been popular.  Here are some images from my collection of historic photographs of Kerrville.
