Kerr County's Lowrance School -- rare photos

Katherine Turley brought by a wonderful album of photographs which had belonged to her husband's family.  I'd never seen images of the old Lowrance School.  From what I understand, the Lowrance School was in Kerr County and was later called the Liveoak School.  According to the Kerr County Album, the Lowrance School was about 28 miles west of Kerrville.  It was built in the early 1900s and was closed in 1947.  Grades 1 through 8 were taught there.

  1. Would the Lowrance School have been on the Auld Ranch? A young woman named Susanna Lowrance married into the Auld family way back when.

  2. In the first photo, it looks like that man is about to make things interesting with that 2x4 held as if about to strike the donkey on the rear.
