Old Family Photo Collections Van Zandt County Genealogical Society
The photos on these pages are generously contributed by Milda Mason of Alto, New Mexico. Her ancestors were early settlers in Van Zandt County and these wonderful old photos are much appreciated. In addition, there is a very interesting story on this family and the Bottoms family on our "Old Tales, Stories Page" that you don't want to miss. If you would like to share your old family photos by placing them on this web site, please contact Sibyl Creasey for instructions.
THOSE MARVELOUS BOOTS
This is "Red" Roach, a friend of the family and a co-worker of my daddy and uncles in Texas during the Great Depression.
He worked on a cable tool oil rig and I am fascinated by his fancy boots.
These were before steel toed work boots were made.
Often wondered how long it took him to put those things on.
He obviously rolled his own cigarettes.. note the round "Bull Durham" tag hanging from his pocket.
