Still more photos that show "Small Town" Kerrville

There are photos in my collection of historic photographs of Kerrville and Kerr County that make me smile simply because (at least to me) they convey the "small town" charm of our area.  I hope you enjoy these!

Click on any image to enlarge

Taken near the Girl Scout House on Water Street, 1967
Any help in identifying the girls would be appreciated!

I've walked on this sidewalk between the print shop and
the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library a million times.
500 Block of Water.  Note the businesses in the background.

Rodeo Days Parade, mid 1950s, 800 Block of Water

Swimming Boys, possibly at the Cascade Pool.  Late 1950s.
Any help in identifying the boys would be appreciated!

  1. I love the sidewalk picture and the old HEB sign. I couldn't see it until I zoomed in. These pictures really help me feel more connected to our town and the community. I'm surprised at how proud they make me.

  2. "Taken near the Girl Scout house"
    The photo is taken in the driveway of the Girl Scout house. These are girls mostly from Starkey Elementary. The girl on the far left is Kim Prince, the Cherry (adams maybe) the the two on the far right are Patty and Darla Putnam (sisters).
