John C. Kight photograph collection

January 13, 2014

In the 1960s, John C. Kight purchased a small collection of glass plate negatives at an estate sale in the Alamo Heights area of San Antonio. While the photographer is unknown, the images appear to have been taken in and around San Antonio with a few taken n New Braunfels. Mr. Kight recently gifted Special Collections with the negatives. All 39 photographs in the the collection have been digitized and are available online. If you have additional identifying information about any of the people or places in the photographs, please contact Special Collections.

Along with the usual images of San Antonio landmarks including the Alamo, Main Plaza and San Fernando Cathedral and the Confederate Monument in Travis Park, there are quite a few unidentified photographs, like these group shots:
