Jess worked at the Cortez Sale Barn. Grandpa would go out and buy livestock to sell at the Sale Barn. He is standing with his greyhounds in front of the Sale Barn Truck. Jess loved his greyhound dogs. When he moved from Oklahoma to Arizona he brought his greyhounds with him and always had some since.
This picture belonged to the Lichliters. The Lichliters owned the Cortez Sale Barn where Jess worked as a livestock buyer. Grandpa Baldwin is second from the left, leaning on the front of his car. His daughter, Verna, learned how to drive a car in the car Jess is leaning on. As a young girl, I can remember going to the Cortez Sale Barn. I'd sit there watching all the people and listening to the auctioneer -- I loved all the sights, sounds and even the smells. Good memories.
