Then and Now: the 900 block of Water 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.

The Sinclair Station, Piggly Wiggly, and the Blue Bonnet Hotel are in the background.
This was across the street from the current sanctuary of Notre Dame Catholic Church.
