Four Photographs of the corner of Sidney Baker and Water Street over time

One of the things I like to do with my collection of historical photographs of Kerrville and Kerr County is see if I can find images of the same place over time.  This morning I realized I had three images of the corner where the old Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital stood, at the easternmost corner of Water and Sidney Baker Streets.  Here they are, shown together, so you can see how that corner has changed over time.  Two of these images have never been seen by the public before, that of the Nook and of the St Charles Hotel.
