Briggs Soon After the Century Turned
Picture courtesy of Mr. Jimmy Williams who says these photos were taken by his grandfather Josepth (Joe) Williams of Oakalla, Texas. This photo -- taken atop a windmill by Joe Williams -- appeared in the book "Briggs, Brief Annals of the Times and People, From Gum Springs to 1960", compiled and edited by Ernest Langford (very hard to find). The photo's caption from the book reads: “Horse and Buggy Days: Briggs Soon After the Century Turned. Looking North Along Main Street. The years have taken their tool so that little remains today of what was once a thriving, prosperous business community.”
