New Photos from the 1950s of Life in Kerrville, part 1

I found another box of photographs in one of the seldom-visited nooks of the print shop this week; it was filled with some great photos.   Some of these images have never been published; most, when I received them, were impractical to prepare.  (I really love my new scanner which scans all types of photographs, even negatives!)  I hope you enjoy these.
