Texas: The Lone Star State

Posted on 04/28/2020 by Nathan Lewis in New Content Releases

“Friendship” is the official state motto

Today, we are excited to announce that over 750,000 photos are now available to search and view online. As the saying goes, everything’s bigger in Texas, and the agriculture industry is no exception. for example The King Ranch in Texas is bigger than the state of Rhode Island. The Lone Star State leads the nation in total number of farms and, with more than 245,000 farms averaging around 530 acres in size. These farms take up a staggering 130 million acres of land. Texas farmers are very family focused, with nearly 99 percent of Texas farms and ranches being family owned. Texas agriculture’s total economic impact reaches $115 billion annually, and one out of every seven Texans works in agriculture. The top commodities include cattle and calves, cotton and dairy products. Our collection of aerial photos focuses on these rural farming properties and we hope you find something meaningful within them. Here are a few of our visitors who did.

“I was born in this house 83 years ago. The buildings are gone, but I still own the farm.”

“The First Baptist Church in Miami, Texas. My grandmother was the nursery teacher there for years, my aunt was married in this church and at 99 years my grandmother’s funeral was held in this church.”

“Wet n Wild water park Garland Texas, when six flags bought out the company they closed this location almost immediately. It was promptly torn down and CarMax was built where it once was.”

COVID-19 and its impact on us

Posted on 03/24/2020 by Lance Roper in Company Updates

Update: We've resumed fulfillment of all our products.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we’re making some important changes to ensure the safety of our employees and suppliers.

Effective immediately, all printed products such as Canvas Wraps, Photographic Prints, and Framed Prints will be temporarily unavailable for purchase. This is a drastic measure for us, but we’re certain it will help reduce the spread of this virus by eliminating the kind of person-to-person contact required to manufacture these products.

We promise to fulfill any orders that have already been placed for printed products, although there may be minor delays as suppliers and carriers navigate these unprecedented conditions.

Digital Files will continue to be available at a heavily discounted price of $129 until we’re able to safely resume normal operations. With your support, we can endure this difficult time and continue the important work of preserving historic content.

We remain committed to providing a safe working environment for our staff. Most of our small team will be working from home, while others are working in accordance with CDC workplace and social-distancing guidelines.

We wish peace and safety to you and your loved ones, and may we all emerge from this tragedy stronger than before.
