This film from Grapeland, Texas features an interview with plum orchard owner Johnny Wilkins, “one of the pioneer plum boys in this area.” The footage also includes a pruning demonstration of a plum tree and discussion of the plum industry in the region. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
