Then and Now: the offices of Dr. P. J. Domingues

Recently I gave a presentation at the Schreiner Mansion, back when it was still part of Schreiner University, 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.

Dr. P. J. Domingues had his office and a pharmacy at the corner of
Water and Mountain streets in 1910, shown above.
Mountain Street was renamed Earl Garrett Street after World War I.
The little cart to the left of the building is a tamale cart.  Really.
Later, this site was the location of the Charles Schreiner Bank.

The site as it appears today.
