1899 Kerrville notable persons

Recently Julius Neunhoffer let me scan his copy of the Christmas 1899 Kerrville Mountain Sun, which was full of interesting photos, including a few portraits of prominent citizens.   I present them here as Grinstead, the newspaper's publisher, did -- and hope you enjoy them.  My thanks to Julius for sharing these with everyone.

  1. I enjoyed seeing those photos.

    Thank you Joe, and Mr. Neunhoffer.

    Did the newspaper have a photo of
    John Howard Davis? He was the Kerr County Treasurer in 1899.

    He was also my Great-Great Grandfather. I have never seen a photo of him, so it would be wonderful if Mr. Neunhoffer's newspaper also contained a photo of him.

    Mr. Neunhoffer, do you have any photos of the old ice plant - interior, exterior, construction, or demolition?

    Thank you.

    1. Mr. Davis is mentioned, but there is no photo. Sorry.
