Downtown Seguin: Magnolia Hotel

My friend Nancy and I spent all of Saturday morning wondering around downtown and browsing the booths of Trade Days for photos. I'll be posting several of the photos I took over the next few days. This post contains photos of one of the historical buildings in Seguin: the Magnolia Hotel. It is one of the stops along the "True Women" tour. For those of you unfamiliar with "True Women," it is the story of the women of the Alamo and the title of the book by Janice Woods-Windle. Check out the True Women website for more information about the tour and the other historical sites of Seguin.


The Magnolia Hotel was built in 1842 and was one of the first structures in Seguin to use concrete.


Nancy and I challenged one another in our photography venture Saturday. One of those challenges was to depict the passage of time without photographing a clock. For my passage of time photo I chose to take pictures of the Magnolia Hotel:

My friend and I were recently talking about the ubiquitousness of technology in our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
