Summary expansion
The amateur photographer took photos--some shot from the car window--of herds of cattle, grazing on rolling hillsides as well as standing in pens near farm buildings; a sign for the H.J. Whitley Land Co. is visible in one photo. Several photos may show Whitley himself, standing amid fields of wheat, his car parked nearby. Other photos document the harvesting of the grain using large mule-drawn reapers, and the bags of newly-threshed wheat stacked in rows at the end of the field. Also included are photos of other aspects of the ranch, such as artesian wells--drilled by the Coburn and Brewster company as noted on a sign in one photo--irrigation ponds, water tanks, and well-drilling towers; chickens in a large yard, bordered by a row of coops; country roads, farm buildings, and houses. There are also three photos of orchards planted on hillsides
