Some additional photographs that show "small town" Kerrville

Here are some more fun images from my collection of historic photographs of Kerrville and Kerr County.  These make me think of Mayberry -- and how simple and innocent life was in Kerrville not so long ago.

  1. Joe,
    I knew I should have asked you first!! I have been trying to determine the age of my office building at 513 Earl Garrett. Fred found that the land was purchased in 1895, but nothing on the building. I am fix'in her up right now; she will be ready for Executive Suite offices on 9/1/10 and I already have 3 tenants! I want to put on the sign out front "The Morris Place" circa 1895, but I am trying to get more info. Can you help me? When the carpenter cut out part of the wall, he saved for me a beautifully preserved piece of the paper wallpaper; he was describing it to me over the phone and said "it is a New Orleans Saints Logo" (I believe being from New Orleans that would be a fleur-de-lis. How appropriate that I connected with this house. Thanks for any info or direction you could point me in.

  2. That first photograph is one of the coolest I've seen of old Kerrville. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Yes, the first pic is great. I believe that there's a Furman and a Mosty on the right. Several others look familiar, but just can't place their names. This would have been in the late 1950s.
