Figs? I don’t even like figs, but I came across a great photo from about 1910 of a young Texas farmer in a derby hat, clutching a fig plant… and the next thing I knew, I was deep into a search for more photos of Texas fig farmers. See what I found.
Miss Corinne Baker in her eye-popping windmill dress — perfect from the tip of her kooky hat to the bottom of her windmill-blade skirt. And everything else in between. See the full-length photo inside.
In 1914, Littlefield, Texas was luring investors and settlers to the flat South Plains area of Texas by showing off their successful irrigation wells. More photos of wells (and watermelons!) inside.
