Then and Now: 417 Hays Street, Kerrville

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.

I believe this was the home workshop of Max Grona,
a blacksmith.

The site as it appears today.

The Grona home has been restored, and serves as the offices
of the Kerrville Board of Realtors.
