San Angelo in Tom Green County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
South Chadbourne 200 Block Early 1900's
Extra Extra Read All About It
This Mural is a street scene from the early 1900's looking north down Chadbourne Street from the Concho Street [sic - Avenue] corner behind you.
The building on the far left was the Ragsdale building which used to sit in this parking lot. M.C. Ragsdale was responsible for most of the earlier photos taken of San Angelo. His photo documents the Trolley and car wreck. This street was made of wooden blocks and had over 30 businesses operating at that time.
The muralist adds her own details such as three tiny mice, a white cat, horses with only three legs and a famous quote or two.
Enjoy the Third Historic Mural of San Angelo, Texas. The first can be seen at the corner of Chadbourne and Ave. C by the train Depot and the second can be seen on the Oak[es] Street side one block east of here.
