This week, I came across a few photographs of the grand opening of Gibson’s Discount Center, which were taken in May 1968.
This week, a treasure trove of historic photos of Kerrville and Kerr County crossed my desk, and I spent several happy hours studying them.
I am always so thankful when people share Kerr County historical items and photographs with me. Almost every week, I get to see items that tell a part of our com-munity’s story, and many times it’s a part of our story I’ve never seen before.
I searched Google Maps for all of the Tchoupitoulas streets in the United States, and three results popped up: the original Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans; a four-block-long Tchoupitoulas Street in tiny Jewell, Kansas; and a one-block Tchoupitoulas Lane in Thousand Palms, California.
There are historic Kerr County photographs in my collection that are special puzzles. These are images of places where I think I know the subject of the photograph, but I have no certainty where the photograph was taken.
