Where they lived: Kerrville homes, 1930s, part 5

I thought I'd offer a series of photographs of Kerrville homes from around 1930.   These were taken by the City of Kerrville, as part of their property tax roster.  There are two things to look for in these images: the architecture, of course, and then for clues about the people who lived in these homes.  Rockers on a porch, for instance.  A pet.  Flowers planted by the sidewalk.  Those sorts of things.

  1. With Google Map I was able to locate:

    701 Hays Street
    709 Hays Street
    711 Hays Street

    What a shame that the other homes no longer exist. They were fairly old homes.

    I believe there is another old home that still exists at 601 Earl Garrett Street.

    It was built around 1899.

  2. I love that fence at 709 Hays St.
