Hectic modern life? I'd rather have a picnic in old Kerrville.

Here are two images from old postcards that show a slower-paced world. I'm not certain of the location, though Lake Cathorne (here spelled "Kathorne") was the body of water formed by the mill dam below the 800 block of Water Street.  Perhaps these images are from that area.  Special thanks to Lanza Teague for sharing these images with all of us.

Lake Cathorne and Cypress Island, Kerrville, around 1905
I think this picnic spot might be nearby.

  1. Those are very pleasant scenes.

    Oh, if only our current lifestyles could be as slow paced as they were in these photos - it would be wonderful.
