Members of a Chicago, Rock Island & Gulf survey crew pose standing in a wagon, c. 1902. The survey crew worked in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. In Texas, they worked a ten-mile stretch between Dallas and Fort Worth. Two of the members remained in the area and founded the town of Irving along the tracks in 1903.
