  • Content Description: Postcard of a herd of dark-colored cattle graze in an open field. In the foreground, there appears to be an unpaved road and a barbed wire fence enclosing the field. Behind the herd, there are three people on horseback. In the background, there are mountains and the open area continues, covered in scrub and small bushes. On the back of the postcard, there is a typed note which reads "Whiteface Hereford cattle add life and color to the mountain pastures." and also a handwritten note that says, "Main kind of work in Fort Davis 50 to 100 years ago." There is also a stamp with the name "Barry Scobee" and "Fort Davis, Texas."
