Then and Now: Earl Garrett Street, Downtown Kerrville

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.

The parade is marching down Mountain Street (now called Earl Garrett Street),
toward Water Street.

I often post historic photographs on my Facebook page.  If you'd like to visit that page, please visit
