Biographical Note

Elmer J. Edwards accompanied his father on his business travels from their home in San Antonio through Texas during the mid-1930s. Most of the photographs in this collection were taken during those travels.

Scope and Contents

The 192-page photograph album of Elmer J. Edwards contains approximately 3,460 images from the mid-1930s. These snapshots by Edwards, an amateur photographer, portray small towns in Texas and contiguous states and street scenes of San Antonio and Austin, Texas. The photographer focused primarily on public buildings and other civic structures. Also included are pictures of parades and speeches, family friends, well-known personalities such as Adina De Zavala, and aerial views.

These boxes contain loose pages from the original scrapbook. A transcription of Mr. Edwards' typed labels, with some corrections, is provided here because the originals that remain legible are deteriorating. Missing page numbers indicate that no labels exist for those pages.



Arranged in original scrapbook format.

They show the various views of the Frio River, the great hanging cliffs along that beautiful stream, and the mountain and natural loveliness of this spectacular, undisturbed region. Most of the pictures were taken along the road between Leakey and Rocksprings; which follows for several miles along the middle of the Frio headwaters. Other highlights of the region are Alto Frio Encampment and Garner State Park.

The entire region is heavily wooded, and represents the very best of the Lone Star state in the Great Canyon Regions of the Edwards Plateau.

4. Houston, Texas' largest city. By Elmer J. Edwards Jr., in August 1939. This aerial view of Houston, taken at a point almost directly above the Grand Central Station of the Southern Pacific Railroad, looks in a southeasterly direction towards McGregor Park and Howard Hughes Municipal Airport. In the foreground is Sam Houston Hall, site of the 1928 Democratic National Convention, and on the left edge may be seen the old Union Station. Directly in the center is the 40-story Gulf Building, Texas' tallest, while to the right of it is the new Chamber of Commerce Building, and the two Esperson Buildings. At the right edge is the Humble Building. Near Texas' birthplace of freedom at San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, Houston's population today approaches the half-million mark, and its ship channel industrial area is the greatest in the southwest.
