It is possible that SH 105 had a different designation in 1934. Many Texas highways changed their designation through the years. Currently State Highway 105 runs through much of south Texas, but a lot of the roadway was rebuilt wider and curves straightened. Fortunately, much of the old highway remains in place and provides a great photo oddity.
