This home movie from the Glass-Kirkland Family History documents a day at the Potter County Tax Assessor-Collector Office in Amarillo. Employees sit at their desks, sort documents, type on typewriters, and gather in the office to discuss work, all while smoking cigarettes in true mid-century fashion and goofing off for the camera.
