West Texas Fair Images from Bill Rector's Collection

My long-time friend Dr. Bill Rector came by the print shop the other day, and we compared old photos from our collection.  These from his collection of the West Texas Fair are really good.
Click on any image to enlarge
Ball Game, West Texas Fair, Kerrville, probably around 1910
This image was also made into a postcard, with the title "Football Game...." but the
baskets suggest basketball.  Basketball came to Texas in 1906.

Grandstand, West Texas Fairgrounds, Kerrville, probably around 1910.

Ladies parade, Woodmen of the World banner at far left,
West Texas Fairgrounds, Kerrville, Texas.
This image is very similar to the image posted HERE and
was likely taken the same day.
