History on a Pinhead

Few facts are available concerning Earle, Texas. Alongside the rails of the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad, it was prosperous enough to have a doctor, blacksmith and butcher in the 1890s, and a post office was open from 1887 through 1904. The town was dropped from maps in the 1930s.

Photographer's Note
"The communities of Earle and Cassin both lie along Pleasanton Road in southern Bexar County. I didn't see any old town buildings, just scattered houses and ranches in the area." - Terry Jeanson, January, 2009
