Photographs of the Schreiner Store over time

For many years, the Charles Schreiner Company was the economic focal point of our community.   Many community leaders also had their first jobs at the store, which operated in Kerrville for over 130 years.
As the old building is being restored by the Cailloux family, I thought it might be fun to post some photos of the building over time.

Water Street, Kerrville, before 1900.  Charles Schreiner Company is on the left side
of the street, past the stone building, which I believe was the wool warehouse for a while.
