Aerial Stockyards Photo

An aerial photo of the Fort Worth Stockyards. Date is unknown, however from close examination, I can see a few cars and they appear to be 1940s models. Also, the train in the left center is a steam locomotive. More observations from Terry Grimes: It is surely before the late 40s because the streets west of N. Main appear to be unpaved. The L shaped building in the left foreground is now Los Vaqueros restaurant. D. Hart built this building as a packing house, but was never used that way. Was a barn and warehouse and, later by Braziel Refrigeration.
You can see Niles City just east of the rr tracks and past the tank farm, most of Riverside. The grain elevator(Burris Mills?) at Beach and rr tracks (so. of 121 upper middle right) still stands.
