The city Looks bigger back then.  I can't tell the location that the pic was taken from.  Does Google Earth have the capability of giving a birds eye view of that long ago?  Maybe that new fancy MS software can "take us back in time".  I bet the vantage point is the hill behind Sul Ross.  Sul Ross was founded in 1917, so the picture is prior to the teachers college being formed.  Neat.  I bet you could sell that for a mint on EBAY.  Thanks for sharing.
