Then and Now: Kerrville's Peterson Garage and Kerrville Bus Depot

Recently I gave a presentation at the Schreiner Mansion, where I paired historic photographs with snaps I'd taken that day with my phone.  I did this because I realized most people haven't studied area photographs as I have, and so it's sometimes confusing to know where an historic photo was taken.  So I took a copy of each historic photograph with me, and tried to find the exact spot where the old photograph was taken -- and then I took a photo with my cellphone.   Over the next few Wednesdays, I'll publish the results here.  Please feel free to share these with your friends.

Peterson's Garage, at the corner of Water and Sidney Baker Streets.
The Peterson family donated the Sid Peterson Memorial Hospital to the community,
and the Peterson Foundation has helped thousands of worthwhile causes locally.
The site today, a parking garage owned by the City of Kerrville.
I noticed many people thought the Peterson Garage was under
the Sid Peterson Hospital, but it was actually across the street.
There was a gas station on the ground floor of the hospital.
